The Road to Socialism is socializing, so thanks to everyone for joining the Amerikan Krazy Party!
HUGE thanks to everyone who caucused at the Super Wednesday launch party for Amerikan Krazy by Henry James Korn at Chevalier’s Books, one of Southern California’s premier independent booksellers. This venerable Los Angeles literary Mecca, founded in 1940, drew a standing room only crowd comprising lovers of socio-political satire and art, film, and book world friends of the author and publisher.
Bert Deixler, a law partner at Kendall Brill Kelly LLP and co-owner of Chevalier’s, welcomed guests and introduced Amerikan Krazy’s publisher, Chris Aldrich of Boffo Socko Books, as well as author Henry James Korn who animated his reading by impersonating numerous characters.
Korn’s rollicking thirty-minute show was warmly received and sales of the hardcover version of his debut novel were brisk. According to Bert Deixler, “Amerikan Krazy is wonderful and we sold 40 books, which is a lot. I think Kareem Abdul-Jabbar only sold 33 books when he appeared at Chevalier’s last month,” continued the attorney and Los Angeles Review of Books board member, “but then again that could have been Kareem’s LA Lakers uniform number.”
