Y Sherill Tippin. 7 Middagh Street literally doesn't exist any longer It was torn down to make way for an Expressway During the last decade of his life the poet Frank O'Hara lived in four different apartments in Manhattan and at least one of them has a commemorative plague If 7 Middagh Street were still standing the entire building would have to be bronzed George Davis the fiction editior for Harper's Bizaar rented and renovated the house with the assistance of friends W H Auden and Carson McCullers Together they sought to create a kind of year round Yaddo a boarding house for artists They were joined by Benjamin Britten and Peter Pears Jane and Paul Bowles Gypsy Rose Lee Oliver Smith and Klaus Mann among others This is their story As you can imagine life at 7 Middagh Street was anything but boring This is the kind of biographical history I most enjoy reading It focuses on a very specific period of time communicating brilliantly the personal and professional triumphs and failures as well as the ravaging effects of current world events these artists were dealing with while living together It provides just the right balance of background material on each resident without ever becoming bogged down in trivial details that interrupt the natural progression of the story Yes there is a certain amount of dirt The spats between Auden and Paul Bowles are well documented and the endless parade of sailors the parties that lasted until dawn the battling McCullers Most of the residents even those who were married were either homosexual or bisexual The book and this history is simply fascinating If you care at all about 20th century art literature and music especially this is a book you shouldn't miss
