Last night at a private residence in Manhattan, author Laurie Sandell was surrounded by friends who came out for her book party. The fabulous Miss Ann Dexter Jones, Zoe, Carole Radziwill, Karyn Geringer, Susan Orlean, Ariel Foxman, Nathan Englander, Colson Whitehead, Ariel Foxman, Albert McEvoy, Kristin Van Ogtrop and Sheila Weller were amongst the party guests. Publisher's Weekly called the book a "...delightfully composed graphic novel, (where) journalist Sandell (Glamour) illustrates a touchingly youthful story about a daughter's gushing love for her father.
Using a winning mixture of straightforward comic-book illustrations with a first-person diarylike commentary, Sandell recounts the gradual realization from her young adulthood onward that her charming, larger-than-life Argentine father, bragging of war metals, degrees from prestigious universities and acquaintances with famous people, had lied egregiously to his family about his past and accomplishments.
