Graydon Carter went to France for months following his surprise departure from his editor’s post at Vanity Fair last year, but he’s back in town and on Tuesday night, he played host at a book party at his Waverly Inn, celebrating author  and her highly anticipated new book, Hollywood’s Eve: Eve Babitz and the Secret History of L.A.  Babitz, should you be unaware, was a scene-maker-turned-scribe who was present at the creation of the Los Angeles rock music scene in the sixties, and rode that horse as far as she could before dropping off the map, a recluse. Before that, the novelist and essayist produced some of the best writing around on her subjects of choice in books like Eve’s Hollywood, Slow Days, Fast Company and Sex and Rage.  Now, she’s someone else’s subject.  


Babitz wasn’t the only unseen specter at the fete. “I’ve hardly seen him,” Anolik said of Carter, looking around in an attempt to spot her host, who left before the party ended.  Guests said he was vague on his future plans, which reportedly involve a media company.  “He said something about documentaries,” one whispered.


Celebrating Anolik’s book, which her publisher describes as “equal parts biography and detective story,” were a plethora of writers and faces from the glory days of magazines, most of them, like Carter, now otherwise engaged.  AVENUE spotted Peter Biskind, Christie Brinkley, Brad Gooch, Tonne Goodman, Nan Graham, Daniel Halpern, Colin Harrison, Debbie Harry, Jane Holzer, Anolik’s agent Jennifer Joel, Randy Jones, Joan Kron, Christian Lorentzen, Robbie Myers, Steve Newhouse, Jane Sarkin, Stephen Schiff, Carter’s wife Anna Scott, John Searles, Waverly muralist Edward Sorel, Alessandra Stanley, Shelley Wagner, Faye Wattleton, Linda Wells, Ben Widdicombe, James Wolcott and Lloyd Ziff, among the ink-stained but hardly wretched.
