Roby Comes to New York
(revised and enlarged Anniversary edition)
“I felt I had done something right”
This is a genial memoir of a Luxembourger’s student days in New York during the turbulent nineteen-seventies. The narrative describes the author’s diverse adventures encountered during daily life and discovery of America, and his experiences as a graduate student at an élite American University (The Rockefeller University). The account is replete with observations on the sometimes peculiar (to a European), and sometimes admirable, behavior exhibited by Americans. Paralleling impressions of Japanese, Swedish and German lifestyles round up the author’s paean to New York and his decision to settle there for good.
