Daddy issues were on display at this week's meeting of Café Society, an unusually stylish self-described literary salon that operates out of Amy Sacco's Chelsea club, No. 8. It was the group's second-ever reading, and the theme was "Daddy's Girls, Divorce and Displacement," an alliterative and timely pre-Father's Day follow-up to its first outing, "Coming of Age."
The Cut asked Café Society hostess and Who Town novelist Susan Kirschbaum what her father read to her growing up. "He used to make up a story for me before bed every night about two little girls, Sally and Susan," she said. "I was Susan, of course."
