SAVE THE LAST DANCE FOR SATAN is set to hot-foot onto bookshelves, and into hip pockets, across America, bringing this long anticipated new NICK TOSCHES scorcher to fans of the inveterate scribe, who is correctly described as “the story-teller from Hell” by French magazine L’Officiel Homme.
SATAN launches with a public afterhours reading in the historic vaulted top floor of JEFFERSON MARKET LIBRARY, located in New York City’s Greenwich Village, Friday September 9th. SATAN is sure to stun stalwarts and sophisticates alike during this rare in-person live appearance by Tosches.
SAVE THE LAST DANCE FOR SATAN delivers Tosches at his storytelling best, tackling the squirming roots of rock ’n’ roll history with a finesse previously reserved for night workers at a rendering plant.
One hundred twenty-eight pages are packed into the “hip pocket paperback” format created by KICKS BOOKS, the New York publishing house that has injected a new attitude into the book world with SWEETS (AND OTHER STORIES) by Andre Williams and THIS PLANET IS DOOMED: THE SCIENCE FICTION POETRY OF SUN RA.
Scheduled for release from KICKS BOOKS in November is PULLING A TRAIN: SEX GANG AND OTHER STORIES by HARLAN ELLISON and in February 2012, TALL COOL ONE VOL. 1 by KIM FOWLEY.
NICK TOSCHES is the author of COUNTRY, HELLFIRE, UNSUNG HEROES OF ROCK ’N’ ROLL, CUT NUMBERS, TRINITIES, DINO, THE LAST OPIUM DEN, KING OF THE JEWS, THE DEVIL AND SONNY LISTON, POWER ON EARTH, FRANKIE PARTS 1 AND 2 (with Richard Meltzer), CHALDEA/I DIG GIRLS, WHERE DEAD VOICES GATHER, NEVER TRUST A LOVING GOD and THE NICK TOSCHES READER.

Jefferson Market Library, erected as Jefferson Market Courthouse in 1874, is a New York City landmark building, designed by Calvert Vaux and Frederick Clarke Withers. By 1927, the Court was used solely for trials of women. Thousands of female criminals and accused innocents faced the gavel here. Famous cases include the murder trial of architect Stanford White, which inspired the book The Girl In The Red Velvet Swing. Mae West’s 1927 “Sex” trial was set here.
Jefferson Market Library houses a massive collection of New York City historical files and serves the neighborhood, the city, and visitors worldwide as a branch library of the New York Public Library system, and yet with a personality all its own.
Kicks Books and Jefferson Market Library are delighted to present NICK TOSCHES in person and on fire at this free public after-hours reading.
Jefferson Market Library closes at 5 PM on Friday. Doors will open for the event at 8 PM, with the reading set to start at 9 PM.
SAVE THE LAST DANCE FOR SATAN will be available for purchase at the event.
Also available will be TOSCHES, a limited promotional fragrance created specially for readers of SATAN.
