Tenn on Elizabeth Ashley: Good Friend

Interview with James Grissom
New Orleans

I have been blessed with good friends, but in the deepest, darkest hours of the long night of no soul, I would have to say that I can only think of a handful who would run to my side--no matter what--and actually arrive in a condition to be of aid to me. I'm speaking of a person who had some sense, who had a supply of humor and smarts and compassion. Someone who was unafraid to slap me around--literally or metaphorically--and get me back on my feet or back to work. Elizabeth [Ashley] is almost always near or at the top of that list.
