Mike Hinge 120

This is an email I received from Sandy Meschkow, one of Mike Hinge's close friends, clarifying about where Mike lived before he died.

Dear Ivan,

   I think Mike fell out of direct communication with a lot of his New York contacts while he was in Philadelphia, so there is some confusion about where he was living after he left New York for Philadelphia. While he did spend the last few years of his life in a rented room just over the Philadelphia city line in Upper Darby, PA, he lived there alone. For about two years previous to that he lived with my wife, Marian, and I about ten miles west of Philadelphia in a little town called Havertown. In fact, the cover painting for George Allen Effinger’s novel, When Gravity Fails, was done in our back bedroom.
