“A great hotel is a theater of dreams,” notes Tina Brown in the New York Times Book Review, and Julie Satow “digs deep into the forces that took the Plaza from a living center of aspiring social connection tied to the fortunes of American high society to its present status in an atomized era of pitiless transactional globalism.” In The Plaza: The Secret Life of America’s Most Famous Hotel, Satow vividly chronicles the life of the 18-story skyscraper hotel that opened in October 1907 and the cast of characters that made it a center for culture and commerce for more than a century.
