...tomorrow: the Catholic novelist Graham Greene, the poet Wallace Stevens, and Gandhi.
I've never read Greene - how Catholic was the Catholic Greene, at least in his books?
Very! My favorite is The Heart of the Matter. He is interested in the psychology of sin.
I loved Our Man in Havanna and most of his early work. What happened to him as he got older, Steve? He was always a cynic, but a forgiving one early on and not nearly so as he got older. Do you know why?
Kate - No, I don't. I'm hoping somebody among us is familiar with his biography and has read more of his work than I (and it was years ago). His actual sins, reportedly many, may have worn him down, a subject he himself explored as a writer.
Life is worth enjoy and live happily and make the Life worth. So work hard and make life rocking
