9. Jeff Wong

I’ve done a poor, poor, pitiful job of updating this blog as of late, but, for what it’s worth, the time has been well spent and yielded not only funding that allows me to continue concentrating on the book but also a wealth of additional research material. Mea culpa, mea culpa…

Back on June 2nd at the Lincoln Center Barnes & Noble, where Crystal Zevon was joined by Dave Barry and a couple of members of the Rock Bottom Remainders to promote her biography of Warren Zevon (much more to follow about the Zevons and their relationship with Paul), I had the opportunity to meet the talented illustrator Jeff Wong. Paul was a dear friend of Jeff’s. The two of them shared, among other interests, a love of Ross Macdonald books (more to follow, too, about the role that Macdonald, aka Ken Millar, played in Paul’s life). And, because the universe is sometimes a wonderful and just place, Jeff will be illustrating the cover of Everything Is an Afterthought: The Life and Writings of Paul Nelson.

He graciously mentions the project in his answer to the final question of an interview posted over at Duane Swierczynski’s Secret Dead Blog.
