Join us as we look at the backstory behind this novel by John Freeman Gill – including the real-life figure of Ivan Karp, who managed to salvage a trove of architectural remnants from Beaux Arts buildings around New York City with his renegade group The Anonymous Arts Recovery Society (some persist behind the Brooklyn Museum to this day). While Gill currently serves as Streetscapes columnist at The New York Times, this chat will focus exclusively on the book and the archival research that went into its creation as a historically-informed literary work.
