It takes a lot to bring America’s greatest living fiction, non-fiction, and journalism writers into one room, but if one woman could do, it’s Tina Brown. The Daily Beast editor-in-chief hosted the first ever Norman Mailer Colony soiree at Cipriani last night, to celebrate the non-profit in which promising young writers get to live in Norman Mailer’s house in Massachusetts for a week to a month.

Guests included Salman Rushdie, Joan Didion, Richard Goodwin, Michael Cunningham, Jeffrey Eugenides, Annie Leibovitz, New Yorker editor-in-chief David Remnick and master of ceremonies, Calvin Trillin.

Among the revelers were also editors and writers from The Nation, Budget Travel, The New Yorker, The New York Times and The Week.
