[nice copy, remainder dot stamped on top edge, minimal shelfwear; jacket very faintly worn]. (B&W photographs) Memoir by a woman who came to live at the famous Catskills resort hotel at the age of eight in 1945 (her mother was a cousin of the famous Jennie Grossinger, who had opened the place in 1914), and found that "family life could be unpredictable and sometimes difficult in a household that catered to a thousand guests at its peak season. Famous for its fabulous cuisine, facilities, and star-spangled entertainment, Grossinger's has also long been noted as the place where many show business luminaries were launched. [The book] is a look through the eyes of a sensitive youngster at what some favorite celebrities were like when they let their hair down." (My favorite quote is from Damon Runyon, who called the resort "Lindy's with trees.")
