Amory Blaine is a character who attends or attended a fictional version of Princeton; Tessa Majors attended Barnard.
Tessa was in a rock band.
Her story calls to mind Mia Zapata of The Gits.
On Terry and my honeymoon, Terry drew at the art league while I walked and bussed to Morningside Heights and back.
When I clicked thru from New York Times coverage to a neighborhood website it described a man named Bob Lederer whose name is very similar to that of my friend a musician.
It reminds me of the Central Park Five case; let’s be sure we hold the right people responsible.
It reminds me of a recent Barnard grad I corresponded with, who is musical.
I was just Thursday telling the musician Darren Johnston the somewhat amusing story of me and Barnard grad ‘88 dancer June Omura. (Who I thought resembled, in 2001, a boy, but now you can find her posing topless for Annie Leibowitz.
Tessa’s father teaches literature I think at Vanderbilt.
There’s also David Woj the artist Keith Haring Andy Warhol Whitney Museum and his band Three Teens Kill Four No Motive.
And that Howard Finster called David Byrne the Peeping Heads.
Death Cab For Cutie.
I will follow you into the dark.
