Literary Nonfiction. Memoir. This second collection of memoirs continues McIntosh's coming of age story set in Long Island's famous Hamptons arts colony. Included are stories of wild adventures in filmmaking with Norman Mailer and Ilya Bolotowsky, the discovery of Communists among the writers and painters, as well as encounters with Truman Capote, Jean Stafford, P. G. Wodehouse, and others.

"LESSER LIGHTS is very funny. There's also an exquisitely fine sense of a special place and time."--Phillip Lopate

"I love time travel stories--and this book offers a trip back to a time and place that seems almost like science-fiction today. Wonderful characters, great surprises, and a sly sense of humor that kept me eagerly turning the pages."--R.L. Stine

"Hilarious....LESSER LIGHTS is a charming memoir written from that place where art and fact commingle to produce a swift, rollicking read."--The East Hampton Star
