What do Mo Rocca, Floyd Abrams & Chris Knutsen have in common? They were all at Junno’s in New York City celebrating the release of Gypsy Lover by Edith Layton. Gypsy Lover marks Layton’s thirtieth publication in her award winning career as a romance and historical novelist.
Spotted at the fête were comedian Mo Rocca; Radar Magazine's managing editor Chris Knutsen, Edith's son Adam Felber (NPR's Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me), sex columnist Rachel Kramer Bussel, and Floyd Abrams, America's pre-eminent First Amendment lawyer.
The event was organized by Layton’s daughter, comedian and writer Susie Felber, who entertained guests with a funny and touching speech detailing Layton’s remarkable career.

BREAKING NEWS: Alas, My Love was chosen as a
nominee for the Romantic Times Reviewer's Choice Award in the Historical
Romance category for 2005.
From the Romantic Times website: "Reviewers' Choice Awards honor the best books of the year. The winners are selected by our staff of over 40 reviewers representing the readers' voice in the women's fiction industry." Click here for the complete list of awards and nominees.
Congratulations to Edith on being recognized by the critics as one of the best in her field.
Edith Layton, her website and her doting daughter, comedian Susie Felber, were highlighted in the New York Daily News in a piece by columnist Dawn Eden originally published on December 18, 2005.
Following is an excerpt:
Susie Felber may seem like a brassy New York comedian. She's been on "Late Night With Conan O'Brien" and performs in clubs. But in fact, her life's the stuff of a romance novel. Literally.
Felber's mother, historical-romance writer Edith Layton, once wrote her into a Victorian-era bodice-ripper, "The Gilded Cage."

A reputation in ruins . . .
Lovely Meg Shaw is a respectable governess in a wealthy household -- and it is her duty to bring her charge safely home when the headstrong heiress runs away. But the perils for a young woman alone on dark English country roads pale before the dangers posed by Daffyd Reynard -- a dashing, reckless gentlemen with gypsy blood, who shadows Meg's every step.
