introducing readers to writers since 1995

Next Stop, Greenwich Village

by Ron Hogan

Employees Only, the hip Village dining spot of the moment, was certainly packed last night, as Lucky editor-in-chief Kim France threw a party to celebrate the publication of René Steinke's new novel, Holy Skirts. The crowd was a mix of literati, fashion folks, and music press (Steinke's husband writes for Blender), and I found myself chatting to Pia Catton, the NY Sun reviewer, who told me she loved the novel so much she was missing subway stops while reading it. I also spotted Steinke's cousin, Darcey, making her way through the crowd; she has a new novel out as well. And I ran into Galaxy Craze, who I interviewed back in 1999. She was kind enough to give me some tips about what City Hall's going to be like next month when the Significant Other and I go make things legal.
