Quote of the day: Carol Cooper

The Freaks Came out to Write

“The first person to ever write about Spike Lee in the paper was me. Spike cold-called me at The Voice one day….It was his school project. It was genius. I loved it….Chris Blackwell read what I wrote and got in touch with him and ended up funding She’s Gotta Have It.”

This recently published oral history of The Village Voice * by Tricia Romano looks like a cracking read and ticks my oral history bingo card nicely – 1970s, counterculture, New York – full house! Ted Gioia gives a small taster in his newsletter, The Honest Broker which talks about the death of counterculture publishing.

Instantly added to the want list…
