Personal Quote:

One funny thing was meeting [Samuel] Beckett and Henry Miller together. They didn't want to have the meeting because both had a feeling of really hating each other. But they actually got along very well. And both of them came to me separately afterwards and said, you know, he's a lot better than I thought He's mellowed. See more »
