I've been to a marvelous party

Or rather, my book has, which is close enough.


It is apparently "Internet Week" in New York at the moment, and John Carney of Dealbreaker.com brought his King Dork paperback along to the Thrillist.com party just in case the party started to drag.

In the event, it doesn't look like there was a whole lot of reading going on, but the book did get used "a kind of party prop" for photos anyway:


When Young Manhattanite Andrew Krucoff forwarded me these links, I thought he said that dealbreaker.com was "the Wall Street Journal's gossip blog," which cracked me up but didn't surprise me quite as much as it should have maybe. But it turns out it is a plain old Wall Street gossip blog, which is funny enough in its way but not really.

You need to step up your game, Frank. If you ask nicely, maybe your book will allow you to accompany it to these high society shindigs.

People should just never take pictures at parties, unless something really visually interesting happens, like a semiphore contest or mimes in really sparkly clothes. Can a social vibe be really communicated via photos and not look like a bunch of people just standing around?

That would have been funny!
