back in the day i had a mad, mad crush on crispin hellion glover. his films at the time became cult classics over the years – the river’s edge, twister .. i thought he was gorgeous, clever and something about the way he talked and moved drove me crazy. i bought his book and followed his arty antics. when i briefly lived in los angeles for a summer i was out walking on a warm night in west hollywood with friends. someone pointed to a tall art deco apartment building and declared, “crispin glover lives in the penthouse there”. i stopped in my tracks and stared up, hoping he might also be going for a stroll that evening. they had to pull me away. i still love him. so when a good friend in the publishing business met him at a party recently she told him about me. she was also nice enough to get a signed copy of rat catching for me. i’m intrigued by the signature … “soon” i’m still crazy about you crispin.
