“At first the province of small artistic coteries, Bohemia soon inspired a popular vogue, embodied in restaurants, clubs, neighborhoods, novels, poems, and dramatic performances across the country. Levin’s study follows la vie bohème from its earliest expressions in the U.S. until its explosion in Greenwich Village in the 1910s.”
