    To celebrate the re-release of two books by iconic British author Kingsley Amis, Lucky Jim and The Old Devils, New York Review of Books Classics and Vol. 1 Brooklyn hosted an evening at Housing Works dedicated to his life and work.

    Rosie Schaap (New York Times Magazine “Drink” writer and author of the forthcoming book “Drinking With Men”), Parul Sehgal (Editor at the New York Times Book Review) and Maud Newton (Writer and critic) shared their thoughts on Mr. Amis. Brooklyn Gin kindly served gin and tonics.

    Extra credit: Vol1’s Jen Vafidis wrote an essay you might be interested in reading: Drinking Like a Kingsley Amis Character

    Last night! It was great.

    Once again, my crippling misanthropy keeps me from attending a fabulous event featuring my friends. Sorry to have missed it.
