"But abstention and New York are words that were never meant to be in the same sentence. Before Gotham Tragic is over, Clayton's new marriage unravels; the super-rich owner of City rides his success to a higher plane of hubris and faces the risk of incarceration; a waitress who graced one of Kyle's wilder nights returns to haunt his days; a Muslim doorman contemplates carrying out a fatwa against Kyle, who has betrayed his new faith in an irreverent short story; and everyone comes together at the New Year's Eve party of the century - at City, of course - in a frenzy of criminal indictments, misplaced emotions, lechery, squandered wealth, and the recognition that sometimes love is worth sacrifice."--BOOK JACKET

Lit life by Kurt Wenzel( Sound Recording )
7 editions published between 2001 and 2005 in English and held by 120 libraries worldwide
Set in Manhattan and the Hamptons, "Lit life" takes us on a romp through the world of two writers. Kyle Clayton, a once-hot-now-not young author/provocateur moves through the New York nightlife in an inebriated haze until he meets his literary hero, the dyspeptic and obscure novelist Richard Whitehurst, who tries to set him right. Whitehurst is suffering his own form of breakdown, due to years of public ambivalence to his work and his own neglect of his much younger wife. As the two spirits collide, they find in the other the crutch they've both been seeking. The question of which is worth more, celebrity or credibility, is one we all grapple with in the publishing industry, and Kyle and Richard do their best to answer it for us
