Nearer the real America

David Bowie's reply to his first fan letter from America (via Agent Bedhead).

I hope one day to get to America. ... I was watching an old film on TV the other night called "No Down Payment" a great film, but rather depressing if it is a true reflection of The American Way of Life. However, shortly after that they showed a documentary about Robert Frost the American poet, filmed mainly at his home in Vermont, and that evened the score. I am sure that is nearer the real America.
