Fiction. Literary Nonfiction. "Parties are my library," says notorious party-crasher, Lower East Side denizen, and exuberantly idiosyncratic prose stylist Marvin Cohen. In this surrealistic suite of stories, dialogues and other party-dances, Cohen dissects party-going as both celebrant and philosopher, "romping in the wildness and mystery of parties" and finding there the "pulse and throb and beat" of our individual and collective natures. Edited and introduced by Colin Myers.
Marvin Cohen is the author of numerous novels, plays, and collections of short pieces, including SADNESS CORRECTED: NEW POEMS AND DIALOGUES; RUN OUT OF PROSE; WOMEN, AND TOM GERVASI; INSIDE THE WORLD: AS AL LEHMAN; The Self-Devoted Friend; Others, Including Morstive Sternbump; and Baseball as Metaphysics.
