'Edgewise: A Picture of Cookie Mueller' Launches in NY

"This is a rare period in human history. Never before have so many with so little become so big for a duration of time so short. Never before has such a shiftless bunch of life's lightweights hewn such formidable nests for themselves in so many other people's minds. Never before have the woody, meandering paths of directionless plodders led to the blazing floodlit clearing in the forest, the center ring for the mini-history makers. This is the age of fleeting media stars. Watch the news. Read the papers. These stars are easy to forget." So wrote Cookie Mueller, timeless cult actress, writer and muse to virtually every underground scene of the 1970s and 80s, in a 1987 column for Details magazine. This gem is one of many hundreds excerpted in Edgewise: A Picture of Cookie Mueller, Berlin-based Chloé Griffin's breakout homage/oral-history dedicated to Mueller and her generation of off-the-hook risk-takers and scandal-makers. Griffin officially launches the book in New York this week with events Wednesday through Sunday at Participant gallery and Printed Matter, where she will be joined on all occasions by special guests who knew or were influenced by Cookie during her short, meteoric lifetime (1949-1989). To see more from the book, continue to our blog. "Cookie," ca. 1981, by Ileane Meltzner, is reproduced from Edgewise.
