Petty Larcenist Jeopardizes Literary Vanguard

Shame, shame on the thief who walked off with $3,000 from an n+1 fundraiser, as reported in yesterday’s NY Sun. “It was the nicest party we’ve ever had” until the money disappeared, said founding editor Keith Gessen, but then he also told the reporter “our office manager got into a fight with his girlfriend and had to leave the party, and he’s usually the guy who watches the cash box.” So what the heck happens at the not-so-nice parties, we’re wondering? Seriously, though, those funds were earmarked to help pay for the tote bags they gave away at the party (one of which was probably used during the getaway), not to mention “a pamphlet on the avant-garde” the guys were hoping to publish later this year. (Thanks to emdashes for the lead.)
