James Holmes et al. in Nantucket - 30 December, 1987
from Lies: A Diary 1986-1999, page 1987:
Watched Amadeus - or part of it - for the first time. What an embarrassment. Interpreted by flat Yankee accents, the donnée is to flatter the layman's notion of art. Is it beneath contempt? Not at all, says JH, it's quite worthy of contempt.
