Not just anyone can throw a book party for someone as captivating as Kevin Sessums. It takes someone like Ken Fulk, who is pretty fabulous himself, to put on a soiree for his good friend Sessums as he did on Feb. 18 in San Francisco. Sessums’ name is most associated with Vanity Fair, where, as a Contributing Editor in the 90s, he wrote 27 cover stories and who became famously known as the celebrity journalist who interviewed Courtney Love while she soaked in a bathtub, smoked a joint with Heath Ledger and crawled into bed with Cher before crystal meth got the best of him. Now he’s sober and, as of 2013, living in the City by the Bay, where’s he’s the editor-in-chief of FourTwoNine Magazine. He’s also busy promoting his haute new memoir, I Left It on the Mountain, which was released on Feb. 24 and is a sequel to his New York Times best-selling memoir Mississippi Sissy.
