Words. After writing sixty or so novels, Louis Auchincloss presented a memoir titled, A Voice from Old New York, published after his death last year at age ninety two. Selecting his words with care and precision, Auchincloss reflects on the world in which he grew up, revealing a view on a world that most readers have not experienced. Any reader wanting a glimpse at a segment of society and a lifestyle long past will find a lot to enjoy from these pages. By the end of the memoir, Auchincloss concludes that society doesn’t matter. For most readers, a different conclusion could be drawn from Auchincloss’ decades of fine writing.
