Barracuda Takes a Bite Outta Manhattan
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Kipp Friedmanevents 14 Apr 2014 3:26 PM

Barracuda in the Attic
Author at large, Kipp Friedman will be appearing at TWO of our favorite literary hotspots in New York next month. Whether shooting pool with the mobster Crazy Joey Gallo, attending a dinner party hosted by an aged but remarkably spry Groucho Marx, or simply playing doctor with a classmate in the former estate of F. Scott Fitzgerald, Kipp Friedman led a colorful childhood. The youngest son of celebrated writer and satirist Bruce Jay Friedman, Kipp looks back fondly on the amusing and sometimes confusing events and encounters that helped shape his early life in this moving tribute to growing up among a family of creative artists - swept up in the whirlwind of the New York arts scene of the 1960s and '70s.

First on Friday, May 23rd at 7pm, you can hear him read a section from his laugh-out-loud funny memoir about growing up in a celebrity family, Barracuda in the Attic, at WORD in Brooklyn. Got plans that night? Never fear, for on Saturday, May 24th he'll be at the KGB Bar in the Lower East Side having a Q&A with author and friend Jay Ruttenberg (of The Lowbrow Reader). After each event, Friedman is happy to sign your copy of Barracuda in the Attic. See you in the Big Apple!

"A detail-rich account of an unfathomably awesome childhood in the epicenter of 1960s - 1970s New York culture, and further evidence of the magnificence of the Friedman genes." - Daniel Clowes
