Francis Francine

I had long, and earnest arguments with Jimmy about the merit of Frankie Francine's performance: Frankie could never remember a line, and whenever he had to speak he'd whip open his fan with a great flourish, his wig and tiara atremble, peer shortsightedly at the spot where he'd written those particular lines, and read them in a 1930s radio voice, pausing portentously after each line to refind his place." -- Diane di Prima, speaking on Francine's performance in Frank O'Hara's Loves Labor, an eclogue. From Recollections of My Life as a Woman: The New York Years. New York: Viking, 2001.
