as a teenage gay guy growing up in Ohio in the 70's and 80's, I dreamed of going to New York City and ESPECIALLY to Studio 54. I would look in all the newspapers and magazines for any of the photos of people dancing and partying there.
In the years after I watched documentaries and films and read so much about 54 in its heyday. I was very excited to see that this book had been written about the restart of 54 that I preordered it.
While some interesting stories about the club and the beautiful people that partied there, author Mark Fleishman always feels the need to insert stories of his own partying that really takes away from the inside that the book promises. And hearing so many stories of the women he was able to bang became tiresome. About 3/4s of the way thru the book - Studio 54 is sold the book becomes Fleischman's autobiography. Which becomes VERY tedious.
I bought the book to read about Studio 54 and that's what I would have liked to have ended the last 50 pages of the book with.
A let down
It’s fantastic! Tells many of the inside stories you want to hear of the celebrities but if you have a problem with name dropping you shouldn’t be reading this anyway. But the story is really the author living his dream of sex and drugs and the drugs win. He is very forthright of his addiction to cocaine (supplied free to celebs) and angel dust. So there is a great third act after the debauchery as he moves to LA and runs some very interesting restaurant/clubs there with a different type celebrity crowd.
Very fascinating stuff. I strongly recommend this compelling revisit of 54 by an interesting character/author.
