Famous People Who Knew Me takes the reader back to the Bronx of 1919, where Larry Lowenstein was born. It tells of Larry’s early years before and during the Great Depression, as well as his experiences during World War II, where he served in the Army Air Forces. Most significantly, this memoir tells of Larry’s career after the war during the go-go years of early television. The chronicle also captures the time after Larry left New York City for Atlanta, continuing his career.
Lowenstein tells entertaining stories like making the wedding bed for Elizabeth Taylor and Eddie Fisher. Another tale in Famous People Who Knew Me talks of Ed Sullivan forgetting to introduce him to Elvis Presley at Studio 54. Other stories include memories of Roy Rogers, the Tournament of Roses Parade, and other prestigious hangouts. After leaving New York, Larry had significant roles in Atlanta with the NAACP, Urban League, Special Olympics, and many other organizations. Reading Lowenstein’s memoir, you will see his life in the world of glamour, his vibrant energy, and his sincerity.

It was a great read into a true story of a “Mad Men” man I thought this was a description of what it was really like during the “Mad Men” years. Larry Lowenstein gave a great perspective of those years and names a few people have almost forgotten these days. I loved it!
It was a humorous and nostalgic memoir by the person who helped to make those around him famous. Unique perspective and vision from the author.
