Manhattan 62 (40 page)


Manhattan '62
is mostly a work of fiction, but there are a few books that I have drawn on for historical information and cultural insights, and I would like to mention them here:

Michael Dobbs'
One Minute to Midnight
is simply the best book I've ever read on the Cuban Missile Crisis, immensely informative, wonderfully detailed, historically revealing, a gripping read and beautifully written.

The First Directorate: My 32 Years in Intelligence and Espionage Against the West
by Oleg Kalugin.

Parting with Illusions
by Vladimir Pozner

‘Collector's Item', an essay by Joseph Brodsky in the collection
Grief and Reason.

On the 1960s:

Days of Hope Days of Rage
by Todd Gitlin.

Awaiting Armageddon
by Alice L. George.

331/3 Live at the Apollo
by Douglas Wolk.

For their recollections of those years in Greenwich Village and New York, thanks to: Jane Doyle, Tom Doyle, Marty and Lynne Hectman, Alan Herman, Helena Kennedy, Paul Solman and Steven Zwerling; and for his memories of the Apollo and James Brown, Billy Mitchell, the Apollo Theater historian.

A few friends have provided company on trips to and great insights into the USSR, missiles to music: Artemy Troitsky, Svetlana Kunetsina, Leslie Woodhead and the late Jo Durden-Smith.

And for support of so many kinds, personal and professional: Barbara Edelstein, James Weichert, Salman Rushdie and Frank Wynne.
