a future nobel laureate talks books
i mentioned tom verlaine being on my shortlist of nobel prize in literature winners. verlaine was born thomas miller and took his name from the decadent 19th century french poet, and former lover of arthur rimbuad, paul verlaine. tom is a great guitarist first as a leader of the NYC punk band television. but he is also a reader, and as i suspected, a writer. here in this interview discusses books, only books, and, yes, tom verlaine reads a lot of poetry. and confesses he does a lot of writing too. i think it is high time tom collected his writings and published them. i'm waiting, almost patiently.
