    и как писатель хорош, и как музыкант. тот самый джазовый поп, за который мы так любим Синатру и армстронга, но с элементами того, за что мы любим гейнсбура. и тексты очень даже

    His books are better than the music. Great read for young adults.

    Дезертир хорош, пожалуй. Не сразу мне это открылось.

    Definitely ahead of his time! Imagine what he could have done together should he have lived longer... true genius!

    В свое время прочитал всего его на русском. То что он еще и музыкант -- внезапно!
