 True North: A Memoir by Jill Ker Conway

"Within hours of my arrival in September 1960, New York astonished and delighted me."

I'd say that's a pretty universal feeling about New York, but Jill in particular was greeted by a hurricane, which she'd never experienced before in Australia.

I love memoirs...and stories set in NY, even more.

Thanks for sharing.

Lovely beginning. Though I must admit I'm one of those people who is not charmed by NY.
