You can’t go to a party on the Lower East Side without seeing Erin. Erin runs the podcast Cocaine Brunch. It’s a sort of post-feminist dating podcast with an Orthodox twist. You’re bound to see Michael as well. Michael edits Cleavage. It’s a kind of post-liberal magazine but with boobs. Michael wrote for The New Yorker once. He was #MeToo’d a couple of years ago but we all know his ex and that girl’s really borderline. Max sometimes comes to parties. He’s a communist but he’s the cool kind of communist. He’s the kind of communist who knows that dick jokes can be dialectics. Emilija might be there as too. She’s Lithuanian and she’s an alcoholic. I don’t know what she does but she’s tall and blonde. Veer is always there. He works for the FBI. We can’t prove that exactly but it’s kinda obvious. Erica might come. Erica Knowles. The Erica Knowles. She’s got kinda fat but everybody loves her books. Katherine practically lives there. She’s been trans since 2006. She’s earned that pronoun. Jonathan might come along. He’s writing a book about the cock in right-wing literature. Sandra organises everything. She’s an absolute cunt but we all love her anyway. Oh, and Ryan might be there. He was in a post-indie band but now he’s suicidal. Will I see you there? Come along! It’s all happening on our side of the bunker.
