Sympathy for Mick, Aleister & Chas
Date
Body
On Donald Cammell's Adaptation of Pale Fire

"[Donald Cammell] son of poet and critic Charles Richard Cammell –
heir to the Cammell-Laird fortune and biographer of Aleister
Crowley ...."

"As to the main character – Kinbote, alias Charles Xavier, ex-King of
Zembla – he is a true hero; a lovable, brave, amusing, eccentric,
tragic and totally believable hero. To me, anyway." Donald Cammell




Everything in this post is fascinating - - talk about "Sympathy for
the Devil(s)"! Not least intriguing to read that Nabokov would have
been interested in meeting such a person. I am truly amazed.
