Boss Hog Headlines Book Party

Last night memoirist, editor, and rock & roll scribe Mike Edison launched the paperback edition of “I Have Fun Everywhere I Go” with a blazing set by Boss Hog. So blazing, in fact, that one GalleyCat editor’s videocamera couldn’t handle the punk rock book party at the Manhattan club, Bowery Electric.

The camera worked, however. Here, Edison is pictured between cartoonist John Holmstrom and Patti Smith Group guitarist Lenny Kaye. They were two of the many musical and literary stars at the event enjoying free beer and White Castle sliders.

GalleyCat caught up with Rachel Shukert, who is finishing her follow-up to “Have You No Shame?” Oddly enough, her new memoir combines the influences of Elizabeth Gilbert and George Orwell. We also chatted with Denise Oswald about her plans as the newly minted editorial director of Soft Skull Press.
