luke not funny...not funny at all.

Suzanne Wheat The final comments were quite interesting although most of what Celine has to say is reinforced by his form of delivery while making little eye contact other than sideways glances to the edges of the interviewer and not looking at the camera. His perspective was formed in squalor and a poverty contrasted with his mother's idolization of the wealthy clients she knew from her lace-making business. At the end he speaks of a heaviness born of stark inequality exemplified by the contrast of a woman who wears burlap and one who wears lace. I would say that much of Celine's "craziness" has to do with this contrast experienced continually as a child. In this respect, I was reminded of the election of Trump. A huge swath of Americans who have lost everything that they thought they had are voting for the billionaire that they actually want to be. So much for shooting yourself in the foot. Heavy indeed.

Renata I like so much of this interview. He didn't know how to talk. Maybe it is the reason his writing is so good.

Michael Murphy Our youth has gone to the ends of the earth to die in the silence of the truth. And where, I ask you, can a man escape to, when he hasn’t enough madness left inside him?
