Donleavy profile in Harper's Bazaar (U.K. ed.)

Unread postby Donna B. » Fri Apr 14, 2006 12:26 pm

“Mr. Depp is something else,” [Donleavy] says. “He’s very bright and very knowledgeable, and he has a fantastically black sense of humour.”


The quote is from a profile of JP Donleavy that appears in the May issue of Harper’s Bazaar (U.K. edition).

I’m not sure if anything in the profile is new to you, but I thought I would share it with you just the same. I was a bit surprised to come across the profile in my fashion magazine. ;-)

Thank you, Donna B! That was a great read! Nice pic of JD and JP too! :cool:

Yes that pic ought to be posted in another thread as its a pic not seen before, I assume from the party Johnny attended in New York.
Thanks Donna for the read, interesting .

That's a fantastic read, Donna B. Thanks!

And while I very much enjoyed the photo of Mr. Donleavy with Johnny (taken when? this winter, but I've lost track of when that soiree was held), I found myself staring at the photograph of Donleavy as a younger man. :-O There is a certain resemblance . . .

I had the same thought, PTP. :-O

Here is the pic of Mr. Donleavy as a young man as published in the article.

Thanks Donna. Great find. I've been reading Ginger Man but I haven't had a look at the discussion going on at ONBC. Ginger Man depresses me some way or another. Too much deprivation and drink and broken promises. I do like the style of writing. This article will certainly help me to read it with somewhat different eyes.

Anna, I hope you will check out our discussion! Many of us have had the same reaction to the story as you but the discussion is helping me understand it in a different way. :cool:

I'd love to see Johnny's art collection.That's one good way to endear an artist to you,it's to buy their work. :grin: ....I find it ineresting that Johnny dressed formally for this occasion,he didn't wear his casual gear. :cool: ..
