George Gurley. What can we say? He’s the Pan of New York’s party scene, whose herculean feats of indulgence at bacchanals over the years have inspired a generation of aspirant dipsos and would-be novelists alike. Tonight, Mr. Gurley celebrates his newest book, George & Hilly: The Anatomy of a Relationship, an exhilaratingly voyeuristic look into the author’s therapy sessions with his now-fiancée. From re-enacting Fellini sex scenes to enlisting the aid of Debtors Anonymous, Mr. Gurley spares no sordid detail in his exhibitionist opus. If Mr. Gurley’s book party is anything like the soirees he covered in his premonogamy days, we’re in for a long night—in the best kind of way.
George Gurley’s Book Party, Doubles at the Sherry-Netherland, 781 Fifth Avenue, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Invite only.
