Barely 21, this sad, funny, young man was a raging alcoholic and a musician. An English citizen of privilege, George’s parents sent him to America to be rid of him. He had a stipend which he retrieved daily from an ATM machine. He became persona non grata when he was caught behind the bar with his mouth on the beer tap. I let him crash on my floor a few times but the smell of his feet was too much for my 300sq/ft apartment. At 40, it was hard to witness an otherwise vital young person destroy themselves and waste their talents.
