Hemmingson on Vollmann

Michael Hemmingson has an extended piece on William T. Vollmann worth your time.

[excerpt:]

Breakfast arrives and we eat.

“I’ve been praising you to Bill how great you are at karaoke, Mike,” Larry [McCaffery] says, “how your ‘Copacabana’ is legendary in Borrego.”

“I haven’t done that one in a while,” I say. “Lately it’s been ‘Ring of Fire.’ Larry does a good Elvis.”

“I bet he does,” says Vollmann.

Larry sings a verse from “Ring of Fire.” “We need to get you out there for karaoke,” Larry tells Vollmann. “How does that sound? Do-able?”

“Sounds good, Larry.”
