Anjelica Huston

Tuesday, November 19, 2013

Anjelica Huston talks about coming of age in Ireland, London, and New York. She discusses her parents separation in the early 1960s, encountering the Rolling Stones and Fleetwood Mac in London, and losing her mother in a car crash when she was just 17. She moved to New York and became a model in the 1970s. Her memoir, A Story Lately Told, is the first part of her life story.

Fascinating. Riding side-saddle to hounds and remembered moral lessons as a property of aesthetics. Listening to Ms. Morticia Huston filled me with the same sensation I used to get watching the equally upper crustian Bill Buckley on Firing Line: a planted smile for the perfect prose delivery but a feeling of impending frostbite on the back of my neck. Her fury over the gnu slight from Simon was precious. Great radio as always, Mr. Lopate!

@ genejoke : I'm not rich,but since when do "rich" people automatically lose their humanity for being rich. is Angelica, on the board of Monsanto, or something? I'm surprised,that you didn't bring up the very tired and asinine, "first world" problems. I barely have a pot to tinkle in,but I know that there are plenty of poor people, who are moral reprobates , also.

Looking forward to reading the book, but not to further shallow comments by the previous posters.

Think of all the great personalities who will never get to contribute to society because they didn't get born into a nepotistic dynasty.
