I Remember Caramoor: A Memoir

Adult; Memoir; (Market)

In this unusual and lively memoir, I seek to recapture my early 1970s experience of being a teen-aged underbutler at Caramoor, the great estate in New York's Westchester County famous for its music festival and house museum--virtually an American Downton Abbey. With with and rue, I Remember Caramoor recounts the charms and challenges of getting to know the house, its high-society history and its staff, below-stairs and above, at a time when the rhythms of its way of life were already those of a bygone era. In taking the reader behind the scenes at garden parties, dinner parties and house tours, I assess the gifts and losses of a transformative experience.
