book fair on crosby (housing works)

ah the delicious frenzy of new yorkers in search of something new and stimulating to read as the long summer hours extend the day into hot nights where there’s nothing to do but cram up against the air conditioner and re-read Capote into the small hours……

About teamgloria

I used to make my living from writing. And then it all stopped and so I went and did something else, part of which entailed a whole new look from Brooks Brothers (it wasn’t really me, but it was necessary). But a decade later I started to write again (during nights and weekends and frustrated lunch-times and long haul business travel) and one of the things I wrote (or came to me – as I do believe in the whole Muse concept) was a character called Gloria. Gloria was a trainee angel and sat “up there” waiting for her first assignment. To occupy the hours she should have been studying humans and their foibles, she spent her time enjoying the new celestial movies-on-demand channel and became obsessed by Doris Day. So you can imagine the drama that unfolded when she came to Earth. Quite a shock to the system. But Gloria was determined to see Manhattan through the eyes of a vintage Doris Day movie and something magical started to happen – to me too. Because I started to do the same thing and life became easier (and then I got Tobias the tumor which changed the trajectory, for now). There are a lot of glorious people, places & things that help me get through my day – they make my life great – and so I call them “team gloria” (although they don’t usually know that). So I thought I’d start documenting them, and looking out for new people, places & things on a daily basis, and sharing them with you (whomever you are – do say hello. Oh, and tell me who your team gloria is :-)

  1. I love learning about New York through the eyes of T G. It makes me feel very connected with your beautiful city. Thank you.

    It is raining in London today but yesterday was hot and sunny and spent with friends over lunch and then an afternoon and evening of badinage and merriment in the garden. I didn’t clean anyone’s sunglasses though – some services I reserve for T G only. x

      darling william

      i love that you remember the sunglasses (team gloria is totally embarrassed that they were awfully smudgy at that gathering – wasn’t it D’s – ahem – nuptials?)

      team gloria has a fine pair of Jackie O’s from Juicy Couture these days and is very proper about the use of the cloth and mist.

      dreaming of tea at the Savoy. another trip – with you – alas not the upcoming one.

do say something - do :-)
