The second installment in the FSG/GQ “Originals Series”? RSVP: Yes.
Last November, on occasion of the release of his lauded essay collection, Pulphead, longtime GQ correspondent John Jeremiah Sullivan shared in conversation with host David Rees and Caveman’s Stefan Marolachakis before an audience of JJS-heads who’d turned out in reservation-only droves to fill a standing-room-only Tribeca loft wall-to-wall. Among the topics: the fate of Michael Jackson, the pursuit of Axl Rose, the uncomfortable comparisons to David Foster Wallace… Speaking of which: Sullivan’s GQ essay on Wallace, “Too Much Information,” is up for a National Magazine Award tomorrow night—and so in a nod to the achievement, here’s JJS in the first “Originals Series” event by FSG and GQ.
If you dig, mark your calendars for the next “Originals” go-around, featuring Amelia Gray, Hospitality, and host David Rees on May 8th at 7 p.m. at Public Assembly in Williamsburg. Please RSVP at http://originalsseries.eventbrite.com.
