"I can only understand the world when I’m writing, and the moment I put down my pen, I’m lost." -Joseph Roth
FL: If you didn’t go to the Brasserie with someone rich, you would try to bring Candy Darling. At 5:30, there would be guys sitting at the bar, waiting for it to reopen. Candy was always very glamorous. Invariably one of these guys would think Candy was a girl. So we could often get our check picked up.
CK: Candy was a very useful person to know at 5:30 in the morning.
FL: I would often say, “Wait, let’s get Candy to come with us. We’ll go uptown to eat.”
