Gerald Peary - Bibliography
In September, 1978, Gerald Peary moved from New York City to Cambridge, Massachusetts, to become first-string film critic and a staff member for The Real Paper, a weekly alternative newspaper (and arch-rival of The Boston Phoenix) for which former critics included Stuart Byron, David Ansen, and David Thomson.
