    Sinopse

    Praise for Inside the Dream Palace: "Not only essential to the understanding of this crucial New York City-and therefore American-cultural landmark but as majestic and populous as the edifice itself, and completely entertaining." -Daniel Menaker, author of My Mistake: A Memoir "The Chelsea Hotel is so much more than the place where Sid Vicious may or may not have killed his girlfriend; it was a social experiment turned incubator for creativity. IT was home for the artists and weirdos that made this city so interesting-famous, infamous, and everything in between. SHerill Tippins has done a masterful job of condensing a history that could be volumes long, into a book that's enthralling, enlightening and understandably wistful." - Judy McGuire, author of The Official Book of Sex, Drugs, and Rock 'n' Roll Lists "An amazing history of not only the Chelsea Hotel but New York City itself. THank you, Sherill Tippins, for this exciting story of how a building became a community and went on to be a legend. INside the Dream Palace reads like the best fiction and never ever slows down from beginning to end." - Country Joe McDonald, activist and lead singer of Country Joe and the Fish "New York, the greatest city in the world, has been a magnet for bohemians since it was founded, and the Chelsea Hotel has been Bohemia's home address for more than a century. SHerill Tippins captures the mad magic of this storied building. SHe has written a history, not just of a hotel, but of a dream: the dream that art can change the world. HEr serene and nonjudgmental eye gives coherence and shape to a story that resists any conventional frame. THe Chelsea has had its high points and low, supreme artistic achievements and drug-addled suicides, sometimes in the same room. TIppins is an indispensable urban historian; her book is a guide to the lofty aspirations and crashing disappointments of America's artistic avant-garde over the last century and a half. AN unforgettable read." - Oskar Eustis, Artistic Director, New York Public Theater "A revealing biography of the fabled Manhattan hotel, in which generations of artists and writers found a haven...A Zesty, energetic history, not only of a building, but of more than a century of American culture." - Kirkus "Tippins smoothly conveys the atmosphere at the Chelsea in its early days through her descriptions of Gilded Age luminaries like William Dean Howells, while she focuses on the hard-drinking Thomas Wolfe and the suave composer Virgil Thomson in her treatment of the Depression era. HOwever, the prose comes fully alive as Tippins documents the shifting currents of New York bohemia in the decades after WWII. THe list of luminaries who helped to create the Chelsea magic include Arthur Miller, Arthur C. CLarke, Edie Sedgwick, Harry Smith, Bob Dylan, Robert Mapplethorpe, Jack Kerouac, and many, many others-a veritable who's-who of American postwar artists. A Fascinating account of how a single building in New York City nurtured a community of freaks, dreamers, and outcasts whose rejection of the status quo helped to transform it."- Publishers Weekly
