Los Angeles, CA --A French restaurant on Melrose, Ave. -- July 16, 2007

Reading the first "movement" of A Dance to the Music of Time, by Anthony Powell. There are four movements, each containing about three books. The books describe the lives of four men, their love lives and their professional lives. The books must be read slowly to fully appreciate them. Powell, he said, does subtlety and understatement better than anyone.
One of his favorite books--The Code of the Woosters, by P.G. Wodehouse, a great British humor writer. It's about a gentleman of leisure and his valet, Jeeves.

He is a writer himself, writing comedy and features. He worked on 40 Days and 40 Nights.
