Budd Schulberg died, a month ago, in his home, in Westhampton, New York. It was August 5th. He was 95 years old… I met him a couple of times and he was an incredible gentle, clever, witty and funny person. He was full of life and always stood up for equality and justice. He gave apeshit to non sense and faith and emphasized instead the capacity of each of us to do good. He left great books and screen plays. I would highly recommend the novel, The disenchanted. RB.
