MATTHEW SPECKTOR SIGNS & DISCUSSES EVE BABITZ’S “SLOW DAYS, FAST COMPANY”

Novelist and screenwriter Matthew Specktor, who wrote the introduction for this edition of “Slow Days, Fast Company,” will be presenting and signing the book during this evening. There was a time in the 1960s and ’70s when no one was hotter than Eve Babitz; she seduced seemingly everyone who was anyone in Los Angeles. But there was one man who was elusive and so Babitz wrote him a book. “Slow Days, Fast Company” re-creates a Los Angeles of movie stars distraught over their success, socialites on days-long drug binges and soap-opera actors worried that tomorrow’s script will kill them off. In the end, it doesn’t matter whether Babitz ever gets the guy, because she seduces her audience. 7 p.m. Free. Book Soup, 8818 Sunset Blvd., West Hollywood. (310) 659-3110.
