Too beautiful for him

Scritto da Roberto Dell'Ava on . Postato in Blog

Peri Cousins, the woman with whom Evans was living when he first began to use heroin, offered as plausible an explanation as any [as to why he used heroin]: “When he came down, when he kicked it, which he did on numerous occasions, the world was – I don’t know how to say it – too beautiful. It was too sharp for him. It’s almost as if he had to blur the world for himself by being strung out.”
