Becoming an author is a fantasy come true for Old New York Book Shop owner
After decades on the other side of the table, Cliff Graubart looked right at home at this week's Atlanta Press Club Holiday Author Party, signing copies of his debut short story collection, "The Curious Vision of Sammy Levitt and Other Stories," (Mercer University Press, $26). Since 1971, the owner of Atlanta's iconic Old New York Book Shop has thrown book release parties for his famous writer friends and shoppers, including Pat Conroy, Terry Kay and Anne Rivers Siddons. This fall, to mark Graubart's literary debut, Conroy and Kay returned the favor, co-hosting a Carter Center release party for "The Curious Vision of Sammy Levitt and Other Stories," a heart-warming, fascinating and funny novella and five short stories inspired by the New York native's boyhood growing up Jewish in 1950s Washington Heights.
