DW was a brilliant artist, I can't believe I never knew him. I too have been borrowing the Fever book on and off from my local library. There is so much details and so many statements were made in there, a myriad of statements. Close to the Knives is a great book, and I also checked it out at my local library and finally bought a copy, and it took a while for me to find one, and I had it special ordered from (get this!) Borders, as well as The Waterfront Journals and his diaries.
Hatches, during our discussions about Threepenny I had to do a double take when I saw your real name in one of the posts, and then I thought why does that name sound familiar, and thought nothing of it till I checked out Fever again and saw the Rimbaud photos and read the pieces that were written up about DW and I thought WOW..So that's who that is! What a life you've had. It makes me look boring and reminds me how I need to live a bit more. Girl, you are a true survivor.
