Larry McMurtry published a book called Paradise.

Yes, about a cruise of the South Sea Islands.  Polynesia.

I wish I could take a cruise.  I would be like Nelson Algren,

writing Who Lost an American?  Or Notes from a Sea Diary:

Hemingway All the Way.  Rascals in Paradise.  James Michener.

Michener, of course, wrote Tales of the South Pacific.

Leeteg painting tittie-pictures on black velvet.

Was he a serious painter?

Not in a league with Gauguin.

Gauguin hooked up with van Gogh,

who shot himself in the stomach.
