[Berkson:] What's your idea of a good time?

[Mayer:] Not being rich myself, it's to have a wonderful dinner, drink plentifully of all the wines and beers of the world, talk incessantly, write poems, get ideas, go to bed without guilt, take pleasure in lust for all the above, sleep late, have many dreams, make notes, wake late, always be with your lover, write as many letters and poems and other types of books as possible, live forever, find good teas, and of course, throughout, be able to deal effortlessly and lovingly with one's children. And to read and know everything.

-from What's Your Idea of a Good Time? by Bill Berkson & Bernadette Mayer
