John skyped with us directly from Jim’s home in Paris, since at that moment he was visiting Jim for a few days. John lives in New York, where he works as an artist.
He met Jim 56 years ago, when he was a student at the University of Edinburgh and Jim was running The Paperback bookshop, located nearby. “Jim is somebody who really likes everybody, refuses to talk badly about anybody, and to get out his bad side takes a great deal of work.”
Thanks John for taking some time to skype with us!
