In a WSJ essay Anne Roiphe recounts the decade during which she put her dreams of becoming a writer on hold to devote herself to the magnetic but coercive male artists of the period. “Once upon a time the stars of the book review section were roaming wild in the wee hours of the night, like so many dinosaurs in the forests primeval.” Her memoir Art and Madness goes on sale March 15.
