We had a very fun night celebrating the publication of Josh Bazell’s Wild Thing. Here he is at The Strand, in conversation with Malcolm Jones of Newsweek/The Daily Beast, where, among other things, he discussed his childhood love of 75-cent paperbacks, why he found a serial killer’s x-ray a hopeful sign for humanity, and the enduring appeal of the Loch Ness monster.
If you’ve ever met Josh, you know this is only the tip of the iceberg that is his enormous, encyclopedic mind, where fun, fascinating, occasionally disgusting facts are always within reach. (For further proof, check out “Sorry You Asked,” where he answers questions about flesh-eating bacteria, cockroach-ear infestations – and more! http://www.joshbazell.com/sorry-you-asked/)
At a festive dinner later, Josh’s family and friends toasted his success. Here are two key members of Team Josh, agent Markus Hoffman and publicist Sabrina Callahan.
And Larry Kramer was there, too! #thrilling
