    And of course Wolf when people pray they are unwittinly strengthening the Devil. We are in a cleft stick are we not. The Devil requires prayer - any kind. But why?

    When I hear dogs barking I immediately think of Homer. When I hear cats screeching I think of Mr Bukowski. When I hear the weary wolves howl, well I naturally think of that Amercan poet whose name...

    I have been reading The Tolstoy Estate. It hasn't blown my socks off but neither is it an unpleasant experience. I had less time to read (nature of my work) and less concentration during our...

    Can you post a question if you are "banned"? Now that's a post for the philosophistry page! There are a lot of writers who I have never read and have no intention of doing so based on their public...

    Look at our book list. If I recommend you someone all I'm doing is telling you whose writing I like. You already seem to have ideas of your own about who you like reading and why.

    I think most writers are unique. (Just like the rest of us) I would be hard-pressed to think of any writer with the same combination of qualities as Mr McCarthy possesses.

    Surely insomniacs are not to blame for poor writing. If planes get faster then "blockbusters" will get thinner - win win.

    That's a difficult one. Most literature has a magical element in it somewhere. King states that the whole process is an example of telepathy. I can be entertained by the concept of gingerbread houses...

    Old Arold wasn't too bad a guide. Stuck up of course but that's a common flaw of those who know a lot about a little. I have known plenty stuck-up brickies.

    The greatest American novel that I read this year past is A Naked Singularity. I wonder if the people of Pakistan fret about What is the Greatest Pakistani Novel. Doubt it.

    Being independent of influence is impossible. Not desirable either. Being independent of affiliation is ok until you have to take sides ie until you get out of bed. And standing outside society is...

    Alexa doesn't get my jokes - which leads me to think that she is probably artificial ok but not very intelligent. She won't come out with me either for some reason.

    All intellectual processes can go wrong. Sometimes runners stub their toes. Free verse has led tens of thousands to believe they are poets but all they do is write in lines. Once you recognise that...

    Well I voted for one of these anyway - but what would being American have to do with it. I doubt if many Americans read after leaving school.

    Glad to see Wolf still wearing his thermal shirt. What he should do is memorise a "banned" book and /or carve it on Mount Rushmore.
