Michael Seidenberg

Michael Seidenberg, the proprietor of the great Brazenhead Books, has passed away. According to Facebook updates, he was in recovery from a heart attack and a bypass operation.

Family, friends, and fans are sharing memories on Michael's Facebook page. Their words say more than I can about a man that many remember as a one-of-a-kind New Yorker.

Brazenhead was a "secret" bookshop housed in an undisclosed rent-stabilized Upper East Side apartment, complete with a twice-weekly salon, open to all who could find it. I was fortunate to visit once before it closed in 2015. It was a truly magical place.
