From The New Yorker: “Larry David’s Notes For His Biographer”

From a New Yorker Shouts & Murmurs story by Larry David headlined “Larry David’s Notes For His Biographer”:

There are many things about me that I’m sure might be of interest to readers. Things I’ve never really told anyone. I’ve always been a private person, but I wanted to make sure I got a few things down in writing, just in case anything happens to me—or before I forget!

Like, here’s something: People might be surprised to learn that I’m a speed reader. I took a course when I was a kid, and one would be hard pressed to name a book I haven’t read. Books are my constant companions. Like, last year, I went to Turks and Caicos over Christmas and read “The Count of Monte Cristo” on the way there and “Anna Karenina” on the way back. I’m glad I read them in that order. It might have ruined my vacation otherwise! So, you know, stuff like that.

    Wow. Everything he says doesn’t surprise me. That last experience with his adopted child is a real heart wrencher; however, it sounds like the connection is steady and strong. What a mensch of a guy.
