Tina Brown Hosts Book Party for Randall Lane

9781591843290L.jpgLast night GalleyCat mingled with financial journalists and publishing types at editor Tina Brown‘s Upper East Side apartment. The Daily Beast founder had thrown a party for author Randall Lane, a Daily Beast editor-in-large who wrote the new memoir, The Zeroes: My Misadventures in the Decade Wall Street Went Insane.

During the party, Brown gave a brief speech praising the book. “It would make a great musical,” she quipped. “I’d love to see Zeroes on Ice.” Lane followed up with his own short speech, summing up the crazy atmosphere of his book: “We were in the middle of something historic,” he said. “Not necessarily good, but historic.”

UPDATED: Yesterday the Daily Beast broke an excerpt from the book with some passages about financial guru Jim Cramer. Entitled “Jim Cramer Stock Touting Scandal,” you can read the whole essay here.
