Lynn Yaeger On Daunting Run-Ins
Guess what we found hiding in our archives? A little tête-à-tête with the Yaegermeister about the woman who flabbergasts her time and time again. It’s okay, love. It happens to the best of us.
Who intimidates you?
Patti Smith, who I idolize and see out every once in a while. Everything I think to say is idiotic, so I just stare.
Were you a fan before Just Kids?
I’ve been a fan forever. But I have to say because I’m a writer I’m always resentful. When I heard she was writing a book, I thought, ‘Oh yeah, b**ch, you think you can write a book? Let’s see your book!” But the book was incredible, and she’s amazing, obviously.
Why haven’t you written a book yet?
Mr. Mickey [Boardman] was just asking me about that in the car! I want to, but I’m not very ambitious.
What would your book be about? Fashion?
No way! It would be about me…me and all my adventures!
