About Teresa Carpenter
Teresa Carpenter is the former senior editor of The Village Voice, where her feature articles on crime and the law won a Pulitzer Prize in 1981. She lives in New York City's Greenwich Village with her husband, writer Steven Levy, and their son. While researching New York Diaries, she developed cravings for a “beaker of buttermilk” (Franklin P. Adams) and a “pitcher of chop suey" (John Sloan), but sadly couldn't seem to find them by the beaker or, respectively, the pitcher.
