NO CONDITION IS PERMANENT [Episode #46 ~ 11-22-14]


Above: The infamous Purple Bat Lounge, on Brush St. in downtown Detroit. Of its clientele, a physician at a neighboring hospital’s emergency room recalled, “We used to get a lot of business from the Purple Bat.”

Like Marilyn Monroe, Sedgwick found it impossible to endure this life. Her personality disintegrated to such a degree that even Neuwirth gave up on her following a screaming argument in her limousine one winter’s night as it cruised west on Twenty-Third Street past the Chelsea Hotel. At the height of the dispute, Edie had leaped out of the car and into the path of oncoming traffic, compelling Neuwirth to jump out as well and pull the sobbing twenty-two-year-old to safety. After dragging her to the Chelsea’s entrance, Neuwirth handed her over to one of the bellmen, then turned and left her for good. When Leonard Cohen accepted the Factory regular Danny Fields’s invitation to meet Edie, he found only an emaciated “bright after-image” of the girl Warhol had adored. Chattering on the phone amid a chaos of discarded clothes and makeup while playing with her cat, Smoke (a descendant of one of Dylan’s pets), Sedgwick had failed to notice that her friend Brigid Berlin had passed out on the floor—on top of a tube of glue, as it turned out, which glued her to the floorboards.
