Tune in Saturday at 9 p.m. Here’s the schedule:
• Saturday, March 29, 9pm – 10pm. Jay McInerney.
McInerney is best known for the ground-breaking Bright Lights, Big City, which established his reputation as part of “The Brat Pack,” a new generation of writers that included Bret Easton Ellis, Tama Janowitz, and others chronicling urban life for young people during the Reagan era. A versatile writer, he also penned the screenplays for the film adaptation of Bright Lights, Big City, and for “Gia,” known as Angelina Jolie’s breakout role. McInerney also edited The Penguin Book of New American Voices and is the author of Ransom, Story of My Life, Brightness Falls, and The Last of the Savages. McInerney’s most recent novel, The Good Life, is described as his “most fully imagined…most ambitious and elegiac” by The New York Review of Books. His latest book, How It Ended, a collection of short stories spanning his entire career, was named one of the ten best books of the year by The New York Times.
