who would it be?
Hemingway for me. Cool life and awesome writer.
aboot animals all things said.
I wouldn't kill an endangered animal tho
of the highest order. Shit writer too.
And OH but the war and the GUNS and explosions but in the darkness would not there be a soft woman with the caress but NO! the killing and the pain must continue in this year as again, in the next and this time with the snow.
I'd go for Hunter S. DRUGZ IZ KOOL
you're on the naughty list for the day.
He is NOT shit.
he's a middling to decent writer, but yes the man was a giant liar and an idiot.
I am actually making a list
perhaps that's why I like him?
I think so.
He ended things on his terms
Kill your wife by accident? Chronic drug addictions?
Sure, why not.
yet fucked Martha Gellhorn and met Picasso
South of France glamour, champers, yachts... although whores aren't as glamourous as gigilos.
I like the idea of just vanishing. I imagine him to be living in a beautiful secluded spot writing the novel to end all novels.
Either that or he's a milkman or something.
I think I hate him in equal measure. Too many young boys thinking they're Holden Caulfield.
but I still read the Glass family stuff. I really like it.
I'M the REAL Holden Caulfield!
I don't take it as a good thing. Anyway, i'm trying to become more of a dean moraiarty sexy wildman now. I just move from one cliche on to the next.
"sexy wildman" takes some beating.
you win the spelling compo
hmmm labour camps
because he's one of the only writers i like that hasn't lived a pretty fucked up existence/ i rather like the idea of owning a jazz bar in tokyo
orr Milan Kundera maybe, judging by his novels he had a grand old time of it
Still Henry Miller then.
