Billy Parrot, a librarian at the Battery Park branch of the New York Public Library and an obvious fan of TV's Mad Men, created a list of books featured or casually mentioned in this series set in 1960s New York. The books offer an insight into the characters and add an authentic touch to the show's gray-flannel-and-scotch theme.
