I went to the St Marks Bookshop with my friend thursday night to hear Jerry Stahl, Lydia Lunch, Eric Bogosian and a few others read excerpts from The Heroin Chronicles a new book of essays about..well, heroin! It was a fun night and felt like old NYC to me..all freaks and old junkies and neighborhood characters were in attendance. Jerry was hilarious as the host(he edited the book), and turns out he is a big Crumb fan so we exchanged info and he gave me a free book. yay! I need to name drop more often I think. Here are some pics I snuck and here is a link to the new book on Amazon.
I am a slum goddess. I flit about all day spreading joy and happiness. I lived in C squat for a decade. I also sing and play in Eden and John's East River String Band with Robert Crumb and John Heneghan.
