Join former New Yorker columnist and preeminent critic Daphne Merkin for a reading from The Fame Lunches, a fearless, darkly observant, refreshingly incautious collection of essays that examines faded icons, famous writers, and our collective fascination with celebrity. Merkin will be joined in conversation by Sasha Weiss, literary editor of newyorker.com.
"Daphne Merkin’s sparkling and unreasonably informed essays are about fame, yes, and lunches, somewhat. Above all, they are strikingly original takes on the human condition."—Woody Allen
