What? You think writers just sit around all day with their notebooks and laptops? Nerds with pencils behind their ears? Nah.
Kevin Dolgin and I once went to a Mexican restaurant in Chelsea on a winter’s evening. My feet were so cold, I took my shoes off so I could sit cross-legged and warm my toes. We ordered scotch and something with guacamole, and when we finished – some three hours later – we knew each other’s life stories, and there was half a foot of snow outside. Kevin is a great friend, a great human being. And he sings!
Here he is, kicking off a brand new LitPark feature called Writers Sing! with a cover of Jeff Buckley‘s “Lover, You Should Have Come over.” (Turn the sound up high so you can hear his very sweet introduction.)
Kevin Dolgin is originally from New York but has lived in Paris for the last twenty years. He’s done a bunch of things in the worlds of business, music and writing, the details of which are too convoluted to be properly addressed here. One thing to mention is that he is a regular contributer at McSweeney’s, where he writes a travel column cleverly titled “Kevin Dolgin Tells You About Places You Should Go in Europe.” Currently, Kevin is plying his literary agent with whisky to help motivate him to sell Kevin’s novel “Entropy”.
