WHO? Two Friends Pose With One Novel PLUS A Whole Room of Talent and Energy

05-08-2013 We came. We read. We conquered a hot club — No. 8 in Chelsea — and turned it into a performance space, care of my pal, the incredible actress Parker Posey, who rearranged the crowd and stage directed us readers to a balcony overlooking the bar.
So many friends and lovers of stories gathered in one space to hear ‘coming of age’ excerpts from our novels. I read from Who Town, Lola’s first time shooting up junk. Bob Morris, re-enacted talking/considering cemetery plots with his father from his memoir Assisted Loving. Paula Froelich recalled how her Republican gun toting daddy almost ran over her ma. Jason Napoli Brooks gave us wet dreams come to life in a German forest. (Yeah, I know that sounds SCARY.) Nathaniel Kressen treated us to a character from his play Young Girls Wanted: Fiona an actress who plays guys the way she switches roles. Anthony Haden Guest rhymed us through jet set youth from NYC to London to Rome. And debut poetess Arden Wohl took us into the life of a doll and the wilderness of a relationship.
