One thought on “Bongo Interview

  1. This is beyond fascinating, it is kind of blowing my mind. I was wondering if Miller Francis was saying that he is gay now. And I thought it was interesting that, in the sections I listened to, there was no discussion of Maoism or the lines on the gay question that were part of the Maoist movement.

    I think it would be great if Miller wrote not only a novel (I saw a mention on the CNN page that he is doing that), but also a memoir.

    My warm regards to Miller, and I would be interested in hearing from him if that is at all possible, you are welcome to give my email address to him.
