Though I was a naïf from California, new to New York and the Times, I was acquainted with the work of David Levine, whose caustic caricatures in the New York Review of Books would, I thought,enhance Pfaff’s prose.
Roland Topor is my all-time favorite human. Our friendship developed over scores of phone conversations about the Op-Ed subjects I commissioned him to illustrate. Without reading their texts, he created deft drawings for the Op-Ed page of The Times.
Had Sylvester Stallone not lobbied him, President Trump wouldn’t have posthumously pardoned heavyweight boxing champion Jack Johnson. The White House doesn’t say how often Trump and Stallone communicate, but the president seems infatuated
Just a reminder of what you already know & why I unsuccessfully sought to publish David Levine's naked, tattooed-with-his-war-crimes Kissinger in The Times (but managed to get it on my book's 2nd edition cover).
