Obama’s NYC Litterati

Where are Delillo and Shteyngart? From Steve Rosenbaum:

Saturday night at the Paula Cooper Gallery in Chelsea, Writers and Artists gathered to raise money for the Obama campaign….There was a room full of extraordinary writers. Kurt Andersen, Junot Diaz, Jonathan Safran Foer, Nicole Krauss, Tony Kushner, Jhumpa Lahiri, Toni Morrison, Walter Mosley and Samantha Power….The seriousness of the event was strangely inspirational. Perhaps the explanation is in the people who Obama surrounds himself with. These are hardly political hangers on who’ve moved from candidate to candidate.
