From page 85: [Stuyvesant] walked along to the pub-like comfort of the Falstaff and let Jimmie pour him a glass of his best Scotch. Jimmy Charters had been a British flyweight boxer, and anyone who put on the gloves was a friend of his.
Jimmie Charters was a fixture in Paris bar society. He worked his way around most of the bars patronized by English-speakers, ran a few of them, knew everyone, and let most of them cry on his shoulders at one time or another. His memoir, This Must Be the Place, is a deft tell-all that yet conceals the sins, and often the identities, of the customers who were also his friends. A man didn’t have to wield paint to be an artist.
