O ne wintry evening in London, Josh Tillman, the American singer-songwriter better known as Father John Misty , is sitting on a hotel balcony and talking about Leaving LA, the intensely personal minute-long song he performed on BBC 6 Music a few hours earlier. To be precise, he is talking about the ninth verse, which he wrote after trying to identify the source of his tragicomic worldview. He remembers being six, growing up in a repressive, evangelical family in Rockville, Maryland. He remembers choking on a piece of watermelon candy in the department store JC Penney. He remembers his emotionally distant mother holding him tight, for once, and screaming for help. All of it. We have been talking for just seven minutes. This combination of candour and self-mockery is typical of Tillman, who reminds me a little of David Foster Wallace, as portrayed in the movie The End of the Tour.

There is still a chance you can work out your differences, but it will require major concessions on both sides. In retrospect, I believe I was being led to my current spouse. It has just made me realize that these formulas a lot of us Mormons learn growing up about how to have a happy marriage are, well, crap. Those will make her think.
You've all been so helpful. Basically nothing like reality. Unless you convert she won't marry you, plain and simple. A few years ago I ended up in a wheelchair.
