A Biography of Esther McCoy (1904-1989), American Architectural Critic and Journalist

The first biography of writer Esther McCoy (1904-1989). Recognized as one of the foremost architectural writers of the 20th century, McCoy was a gifted literary stylist and keen social critic. Throughout her prolific sixty year career, she worked variously as a journalist, draftsman, social activist, novelist, editorial scout, researcher, and exhibition curator; her life charted the progressive edge of American idealism from the utopian spirit of Jazz Age Greenwich Village through the radical evolution of post-war architecture.
