powerHouse Books Launch: Dealers by Peter Madsen, with Jesse Pearson and a performance from Himanshu of Das Racist
Nov 15, 2013 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm| Free
Apology founder Jesse Pearson joins Madsen in conversation, and their discussion will be followed by a performance from Himanshu of Das Racist.
For Dealers, street reporter Peter Madsen set out across NYC—from staid Gramercy residences to bleak homeless hangouts; grimy Bushwick bike messenger bars and tony Park Avenue penthouses—to interview this particular criminal class. Through anonymous one-on-one interviews with an alarmingly wide host of subjects (including a transient heroin-addict supporting his habit, cute art-school girls running a weed lounge, a connection-ready concierge, fixed-gear weed couriers, stick-up kids, and a lawyer who deals on the side), Madsen extracts un-glamorized, sometimes hilarious, and always nuanced accounts of the navigators of NYC’s expansive drug underworld.
