About “Marie 1973: The Diary of Marie Stanley”
I moved to New York City on June 15, 1972 within two weeks of my return from my sophomore year at college. I couldn’t go back — my father had gone bankrupt — the sophomore year wasn’t even paid for. That college, St. John’s in Santa Fe, New Mexico, had provided me with two years of intellectual training, and a sanctuary from a hellacious adolescence with a pair of reprobates, my erstwhile parents. As an aspiring author, I had begun to flourish and find my footing as an artist in the rarefied atmosphere of the college, abiding in that elite population… Admittedly I was thus ruined for the prospect of having to earn my own living, and upon the lowest possible rung.

This is a project I've been anticipating for quite a while, considering
posting this 'first year in New York" diary forty years
later. Look forward to hearing from you!
