I was thinking about this the other day. Comparing the writers, actors, singers who I followed with keen interest as a teenager with later in life. They would include John Lennon, Steve McQueen, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Tuesday Weld, John F. Kennedy, Margaret Mead, Sara and Gerald Murphy, Jack Kerouac, J.D. Salinger, Paul Newman, Peggy Fleming, The Alcotts, The Bloomsbury Circle, Anne Frank.
Who are some of the figures who held your early interest?
