One of NY’s most accomplished editors, DAN PERES, former editor-in-chief of Details, reads from his memoir, AS NEEDED FOR PAIN. “Exactly the right book at exactly the right time… As Needed for Pain must have been difficult to write; it’s difficult to read. But it’s an important book. While it’s just one man’s testimony of his journey into and through his addiction to pain killers, it’s a universal story that anyone from any background who knows the evil of opiate addiction will deeply relate to.” Augusten Burroughs.
Michelin-starred chef, ILIANA REGAN, reads from her National Book Award long listed memoir, BURN THE PLACE.
“A remarkable exploration of the [memoir] form… Burn the Place is a ‘chef memoir’ only in the sense that the author turned out to be a chef. More rightly, it belongs on a shelf with the great memoirs of addiction, of genderambivalence and queer coming-of-age, of the grand disillusionment that comes from revisiting, as a clear-eyed adult, the deceptive perfection of childhood.”— The New Yorker.
Award-winning writer and New York Magazine food critic, ADAM PLATT, reads from his memoir, THE BOOK OF EATING: ADVENTURES IN PROFESSIONAL GLUTTONY.
“…[An] entertaining and honest account of restaurant journalism, and a life worth exploring.” Booklist “A timely and delectable smorgasbord of dishes and dishing…this honest, revealing and funny book is as deeply pleasurable as the soup dumplings Platt learned to love as a boy.” New York Times Book Review “Platt delivers a generous, hilarious case for the restaurant critic’s enduring significance.” BookPage – starred review
