Party Like a New Yorker Editor

pleasestepbackd.jpgIn his Twitter essay this week, Dan Baum called the New Yorker office atmosphere “vastly strained,” and Susan Orlean objected. As a real life counterpoint, one New Yorker editor’s book party wasn’t a bit strained earlier this week.

GalleyCat Secret Agent Rachel Sklar prowled Ben Greenman‘s book party at Galapagos Art Space. The editor was celebrating the release of “Please Step Back,” and the two-level party was packed with literary types. Greenman even unveiled his theme song, “Please Step Back” by Swamp Dogg.

Here’s more from Rachel Sklar: “Who else was there–Sasha Frere-Jones (on stage w/ him); Jody Rosen (Slate); David Sax (Save The Deli), Alana Newhouse (Nextbook Editor in Chief), Dan Rollman (URDB); Lauren Mechling (“Dream Girl” ); Larry Smith (Six Word Memoirs). Greenman commented: ‘Brooklyn humiliates other cities in terms of how many people are doing good work.’”
