On the Wing: A Young American Abroad.
Sayre [1932-2001] describes bringing her youthful enthusiasm along with her backpack and passport as she left Manhattan for London, where she spent the last half of the 1950's. She found herself in a world much more affected by wars and revolutions than her American upbringing prepared her for. With wry cultural criticism she shares her insights into the world of literature, politics, and celebrities. Counterpoint. Washington D.C. 2001. Paper. USED. $3.00
