We went to see DK read in a bookstore in Paris. It was a real treat. A translator read each poem in French before he read it in English, rather than the usual other way around. I was full of good feelings during that reading, although I kind of wanted him to stop so I could enjoy the rest of the poems privately, later (and of course, he did stop. Of course! And left for London to play rock and roll, like any good important-80's-indie musician/poet). This book is good company.
