I stand up and shout hooray, as I kinda like WZ. ...Never get tired of re-watching those interviews on Letterman. Anyway, I've made my reservation at the library and am #3 on five copies ordered. If necessary, I will submit a book report. Peace - Deeve [and see your dentist more often...] https://www.npr.org/2019/05/14/7232...-on-the-life-and-lasting-work-of-warren-zevon . . . While it follows chronological order and the interviews are extensive, Nothing's Bad Luck breaks away from the dry, matter-of-fact style of most biographies. Instead, it frames events in a way that add to Zevon's mystique. He was a fascinating, mysterious figure whose songwriting skills made him a legend, but also a man who battled alcoholism and drug addiction for decades — and someone whose inner demons included jealousy, anger, gambling, pills, verbal abuse, and depression. While these are present in the book, Kushins does a great job of exploring Zevon's alcoholism. He saw alcohol as a "creative stimulant," like most of his literary heroes. He believed this so much he even gave himself a nickname: F. Scott Fitzevon. It was also his medicine: "Alcohol had long been his solace during frequent bouts of depression, writer's block, and self-doubt."
