Photoportrait by Renaud Monfourny

In conjunction with tonight's reading there is a portrait of me on the photoblog of legendary rock photographer, Renaud Monfourny. Nico, Paul Bowles, Lou Reed, Jonas Mekas, Lydia Lunch and Thurston Moore have all sat, slumped or sprawled for Renaud and I am honoured to join this illustrious band. Thank you Renaud and thanks too to a certain BV for putting us in touch.

And then I gave it all away -
the heart, the hired help, the children.
