Art Garfunkel on Jean Rhys


A tiny excerpt from an interview during a visit to Princeton University last week:

Garfunkel, who has kept a list of every book he has read since 1968, was also asked about his favorite authors.

“I like this author Jean Rhys,” he said. “I just love her stuff. She always writes the same lonely, spare, haunted girl. Makes me think of Laurie Bird, my old girl.”

“My favorite author would be Tolstoy,” Garfunkel added. “He’s the best.”
