back to the Black Table

Woody Allen once wrote that 80 percent of life is showing up. Life as a Loser, the weekly column by Black Table managing editor Will Leitch that has run for nearly five years now, is evidence of that: Hang around long enough, and someone will eventually turn whatever you're doing into a book.

The Black Table is proud to announce the publication of "Life as a Loser," the first book from Will Leitch, with a foreword by "Election" author Tom Perrotta, is now on sale. It's half-collection, half-all-new-material, with a pretty cover and all kinds of digitally remastered goodness. It makes


the perfect gift for family members you don't particularly like.

You can buy the book straight from the publisher, through online retailers (coming soon) and Barnes and, or ask for it at your local bookstore.

And what's the best thing about a book? The release party, of course. The Black Table cordially invites New York City area readers to the "Life as a Loser" Book Release Party, this Wednesday, December 10. Come one, come all, bring friends, drink heavily. Come celebrate with us.


When: Wednesday, December 10, 2003, 6:30 p.m. -- until everybody leaves.
Where: Vegas, 135 Smith Street, Brooklyn. (Take the F or G to the Bergen Street stop. The bar is just on that block.)

See you there!
