DIM LOUISE

Dear Louise,

I suspect you were a fan. His death is sad, and he was indeed a talented poet and writer.

I presume that you have an in-depth knowledge of  the Russian Arts world and therefore I wouldn’t presume to argue with you about the relative merits of Pasternak, Solzhenitsyn, Shalamov, etc, on the one hand, and  Steinbeck,  Williams, Miller and their likes, on the other.

It’s probably worth pointing out, though, that, erm,  Leonard Cohen was Canadian.

Kind regards

Munguin
