"The Whistleblower" on New York Times list of "The best of New York today"
URBAN EYE, THE BEST OF NEW YORK TODAY--TUESDAY:
A Slice of Pizza and Politics
On the first Tuesday of every month the critic and professor Mark Crispin Miller leads a political discussion; on this, the first Tuesday of the year, the subject is corporate ethics (or lack thereof) in Big Pharma. His guest is Peter Rost, the former pharmaceutical executive and author of “The Whistleblower.”
Or head to the South Street Seaport — yes, locals go there too — for a reading with the horror writers Michael Cisco and John Langan. If you get spooked navigating the dim cobblestone streets, stop at the always-hopping Adrienne’s Pizza Bar, for one of its “fantastically crisp” round pies. Or duck into the Bridge Café, which Frank McCourt rhapsodizes as perhaps the city’s oldest bar, for some liquid courage.
