Felix Dennis Reads His Poetry

Ever since Maxim founder Felix Dennis claimed in a Times of London interview that he once killed a man, he’s had to face up to the news that he might be facing a criminal investigation.

According to Ginny Dougary, who interviewed him for the Times:

“What sane person – a magazine publisher, no less, even if he were on medication, would tell a journalist (of all people) on the record, even after drinking a number of bottles of excellent wine, that he has killed a man? Dennis is such good company and a wonderful host that it feels bad- mannered to repeat his astonishing claim, but if this was a strange flight of fantasy – and in vino it’s not always a case of veritas – to pretend that you have killed someone, is a very questionable form of either humour or braggadocio.”

We don’t know whether Dennis’ odd claim is true… but we can offer up something else: Felix Dennis reading the poem “Never Go Back.”

It seems like sound advice for him right now.
