QuotationI found this French guy Valery Larbaud to be some good guy too. I just got his novel, Amants Heureux Amants, it's swell. This very excellent guy got a splendid eye for jailbaits I must say, too, in his novel Amants Heureux Amants which I would laughingly translate jailbaits happy jailbaits only I haven't read the part of it that's really called that yet and it is probably about something else. Last night I got some mild amusement from Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, that's good. Oh and yesterday I seen again the [avant-garde film] Crazy Ray up at the Museum, and it was better, I thought.
