Hardcore Eccentric

Gus, 1987, from L.A. Times Magazine

    As a hardcore eccentric, Gus either charmed people on the spot or scared them off quick.  Full of an astonishing array of tics, tropisms, quirks and peculiar habits, he was alarmingly innocent about some things and deeply cynical about others.  Part of him was a sunny boy and another part permanently angry--over his childhood, the war, his poor luck with women.
