As though I had wings — Chet Baker

The new issue of Penguin Books’ The Happy Reader arrived as I was finishing my previous book. It featured Ethan HAWKE who I had always assumed was a pretty vapid actor. But it turned out that I had been massively prejudiced.

HAWKE recommends, during the course of the interview, a book of memoirs written by Chet BAKER and assembled by his wife. It took me only a short while to read this one but it was sweet and real.

Definitely recommended. Sweet and real. I like that.
