  • I heard him perform several years ago in Ann Arbor and it was riveting, especially after enjoying Swimming to Cambodia so much.

    I felt bad when I heard of his death, but this story made me truly sad. And angry:

    The friendly audience that was left was slowly abandoning him, and he didn’t seem to care, or notice. The crowd was ever more unruly, like grade-schoolers taking advantage of the sub. People were again walking out, but now because they felt cheated. One of his visitors explained that she was a mother with young children, and on this her first night out in two months, she had come to see him. She wanted a show, she wanted theater. Who could blame her?

    But mostly sad: very, very sad.
