Anthony Burgess

The Mancunian has been of interest as of late and I felt determined to ascertain when. An obvious choice may have been some months back when Roger gave me the Anatomy of Melancholy and Burgess' blurb is quite prominent on the back cover. Actually i beelive that this very year brought portents of the author. the Times on New Year's Day featured a delightful piece by Harold Bloom about Limbo and it contained references to Pope Benedictus, Dante and the neocons. The essay was actually bracketed by a pair of personal rememberences of Burgess. My actual recall of such, a memory bubbling to the surface of the cranial pan, elcited a treasured smile.
