Splashing around in books.
Alice and swearing. Hmmm.Robert Thacker, in her bio [Alice Munro - Writing Her Lives] tells of how excited both she and her father were at the acceptance of one of her first published stories, called "The Dimensions of a Shadow." But in that story, Munro had used the phrase "Jesus Christ" as an oath; when her father read it, Thacker reports that he "understood why she had used the expression but did not think it was a good idea. He would subsequently refer to it as 'that expression that you used.'"
There is one great videoclip that I've watched several times over [because she is so cute], where Alice admits to having smoked pot.... oh, it is adorable.If I knew how to put links on a comment-page I would do it.... I once blogged of the clip.She is so cool..... so sweet.I can't imagine her really swearing, and yet, she probably does, as anyone living close to the musical truth of who they are, do.
