Things Were Really Flying

So oppurtunity seemed to be knocking with a major art magazine and this would be writer settled on investigating the works from the Normandie cruise liner which went down particularly of Jean-Maurice Rothschild and when the magazine assignement did not come through he started a bit of a tradition in writing the English langauge wiki-page for the artist who seems to have been lost to time like the ship.

Next it was over to see writer Brett Easton Ellis in conversation with all grown up brat pack actor Andrew McCarthy (who had appeared inthe Film version of the author’s initial breakthorugh success “Less Than Zero”) in celebration or to promote the Californian transplants newest work “Imperial Bedrooms” (a very Capotesque choice, non?).  Again Ellis like in Lunar Park is mixing fact with fiction and characters from different works to make sense of it as if any can ever be made.  He read some from the new volume , he talked about his literary youth and being sent out into the limelight , there was a huge standing room only crowd and for years he had or continues to live around the corner in the American Felt building on East 13th street and it was fun.
