Quote of the day: “Another legend, Louise Brooks, once wrote a text about Why I Will Never Write My Memoirs in which she acknowledged the importance of the sexual angle. ‘In writing the history of a life I believe absolutely that the reader cannot understand the character and deeds of the subject unless he is given a basic understanding of that person’s sexual loves and hates and conflicts. It is the only way the reader can make sense out of innumerable apparently senseless actions.’” (Quoted in Paul Buck’s Performance)
