long last, I'm having a New York City release party for my Occupy
book, 99 Nights with the 99 Percent. Better yet I'm doing it
the night before May Day (on Monday, April 30), and one block from
Zuccotti park, where this whole thing began. If you're in the area,
it would mean a lot to me if you stopped by.
promoting my Occupy book on the WRKO morning show with Tom and Todd
earlier today, taking calls and talking trash, when suddenly Todd
welcomes big time conservative cheese Andrew Breitbart on the line. I
don't think those guys were blindsiding me – I've always had
totally amicable chats with the crew over there – but I was
nonetheless taken aback.
some Phoenix readers might know by now, my first book, 99
Nights with the 99 Percent (Write
To Power, $14.99), drops softly around New England this week.
Subtitled “Dispatches from the First Three Months of the Occupy
Revolution,” at its core the project is a time capsule from the
center of last year's biggest news story, written and presented with
an irreverent stank on it.
