Okay, today’s interview from the past really isn’t an inteview at all, it’s a phone message I got from E. Jean Carroll after I sent her a copy of my magazine, fishwrap. I used to send fishwrap to writers I liked and I always enjoyed E. Jean’s work. Her, “Ask E. Jean” column from Elle magazine is one of the most successful magazine columns of all time and the Chicago Tribune named it one of the five best magazine columns in 2003.
E. Jean has written for Esquire, Playboy, Outside and Saturday Night Live and has authored several books including an hilarious and informative biography of Hunter Thompson called, “Hunter: The Strange and Savage Life of Hunter S. Thompson.”
I knew she was friends with Bob Guccione, Jr. so I sent her the copy of fishwrap with Bob on the cover and got this nice message from her. I thought it was cool she took the time to call me and acknowledge the fact that she received the magazine and enjoyed it.
