I. Beth Nanville is, like every other character in Slow Days, a real person. Her name was Peg Thorsdale, and she was the best friend of Petey Mazza (“Jo Marchese”), wife of Aldo Mazza (“Mason Marchese”). And, same as Beth, Peg killed herself. Petey was, says Paul, “upset by Eve’s story and what she thought was an unfair swipe at Peg.” And Slow Days became a source of tension between Petey and Eve, which Eve being Eve scarcely noticed. A strange coincidence: New York Review Books Classics reissued Slow Days in 2016. The publishing house had a single copy of the original book. Petey and Aldo’s. Sara Kramer, managing editor at NYRB Classics, sent me a photo of the inscription:

4/24/77

To Petey and Aldo

Without you I’d be nothing.

Love,

Eve Babitz

Under Eve’s name was a lipstick kiss, the pink still bright, even after all these years.
