David Evanier on Tony Bennett



David Evanier, as a novelist and a biographer, is fascinated by quintessential New York's world within worlds. His biographies are devoted to the world of Italian Crooners--most currently the life of Tony Bennett. David Evanier was a former editor at the Paris Review and the Villager, best known for his gritty, stripped down and quirky style and technique, the author of four novels including the much acclaimed , Red Love about Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, and the latest on downtown life, The Great Kisser. His obsession with the flowering of Italian American singers range from the life of Bobby Darem, to Jimmy Roselli, to the life of Joe "Pants" Pantaliano" the darling of the Mafia, to his current biography, All the Things You Are, the Life of Tony Bennett. His work is interconnected through the perspective he sheds on New York City
