We spent last Wednesday evening at The Dalloway with our friends from Yale Press, Against Nature, and Brooklyn Gin to celebrate the release of the book Artist/Rebel/Dandy: Men of Fashion. A few highlights included Simon Doonan read about mods, Sadie Stein from The Paris Review read about Charles Ryder’s first meeting Anthony Blanche from Brideshead Revisited, Simon Van Booy reading Virginia Woolf’s essay on Beau Brummell Jake Mueser from Against Nature read a passage from the Joris-Karl Huysmans book that shares a name with Mueser’s bespoke suit shop, co-organizer Nathaniel Adams delighting the crowd with some Wilde, and Glenn O’Brien reading from Granby. Nice suits, lots of gin, and plenty of great literature was read. Thankfully our friend Jackie Roman was on hand to capture some of it.
