I read and enjoyed that Rudnick article immensely. Williamson -dear God what a character.

Enjoyed too, ruefully, Rudnick's I-know-it's-hard-to-believe-in-2008 explanation that he waited a full day whether to take a charming, reasonably priced apartment in the Village with artistic provenance AND a roof deck. Insane not to snap up immediately!
That same late 80's period I'd rent apartments- nothing fancy- for each new school year.
Even the dumps I couldn't afford now in NYC.. mem'ries!


Williamson did a brilliant recorded reading of The Hobbit back in the 1970s that is, alas, not available on CD, but should be.
