Stork Club: America’s Most Famous Nightspot & the Lost World of Cafe Society
Ralph Blumenthal (au). From the Roaring 20s to the chaotic 60s, with its apotheosis in the 40s, Sherman Billingsley’s Stork Club was America’s most enchanting nightclub. It was a glittering world where starlets stalked millionaires, where Jack wooed Jackie & Prince Rainier wood Grace Kelly. Where Walter Winchell, the Stork’s famed scribe-in-residence, snubbed the Duke & Duchess of Windsor. From Orson Welles to Joe DiMaggio, J. Edgar Hoover to Frank Costello, they all came to the Stork. But simmering beneath the romantic surface of the ultimate cafe-society rendezvous was a tale of mob & muscle. Here is the enthralling saga of the world’s most storied nightspot & the former bootlegger who owned it. This is the first book to tell the complete story of the Stork. Photos.
