I'm looking for books about life in New York City in the 1970s; nonfiction preferred. I've recently read Patti Smith's Just Kids, Edmund White's City Boy, and I grew up with beautiful books about Blondie and the music scene during that time. I also read the fat Mapplethorpe biography. What else would you recommend? Nonfiction, memoir, especially by or about artists and musicians go to the top of the pile, but fiction suggestions are welcome, too.
