Relive the Revel

April 11, 2014 | by

We’re still recovering from Tuesday’s Revel, where some five hundred people gathered to honor Frederick Seidel with the Hadada Award, presented by John Jeremiah Sullivan. Lydia Davis presented Emma Cline with the Plimpton Prize for Fiction; Roz Chast presented the Terry Southern Prize for Humor to Ben Lerner; and Martin Amis, Zadie Smith, and Uma Thurman all read from Seidel’s work. We could say a good time was had by all, but why not let the pictures tell the tale? It was a spectacular evening. You can read accounts of the fun from Page Six, Women’s Wear Daily, and Guest of a Guest. Be sure to take a look at all the photos here, too. See you next year!

    I liked the photo of Uma Thurman with the nondescript waiter in the background; that photo summed up much about something or other – maybe Life or something. I like the photo, really. … Cheers. OK.

    El, Zadie Smith read “”Downtown,” Martin Amis read “Frederick Seidel,” and Uma Thurman read “The Night Sky”—in that order.
