Praise for Dan Rattiner

The why and how are more likely found in the pages of Dan s Papers If you want to understand the crazy quilt of art, sand, money, farmland, literature, golf clubs, divorces, sea spray, and the area s remarkable blend of ego, generosity, and dedication to historic preservation, read Dan s book, In the Hamptons, and its sequel, In the Hamptons Too. Alec Baldwin, from the Foreword of In the Hamptons Too
Dan Rattiner has been chronicling the people and events of the Hamptons for as long as I ve been going there (since the sixties). If anyone wanted some insight into what made this area such an interesting place, all they d need was a copy of In the Hamptons. It s as close to rubbing elbows as you can get. Enjoy! Billy Joel
