Troubled Water

What is it All But Luminous: Notes from an underground man by Art Garfunkel is an autobiography I looked forward to with sincere interest. I am sorry to report how disappointed I was in it. Ever-changing fonts and layouts where torture for this guitar playing, music fan’s elderly eyes.

There were three things in this collection of random notes, poems and disconnected thoughts which caught my attention. Art’s photos, reading lists, and the songs on his iPod. Outside of those brief interludes, I wondered who thought this was a great idea?  When it comes to this biography, the one thing I am grateful for is that I didn’t purchase it. Talented musician? Yes, without a doubt. A writer? Stick to what you know Art.
