A Somewhat Skid

Recently I made overtures to acquire Norman Sherry's three volume biography of Graham Greene: I asked my friend Ed to look for it while in Berkeley and then actually loaded it in my cart at Better World Books (hey, it supports literacy programs and is in Indiana) but alas I never consummated such, always the maid, perhaps Henry Green was pulling my punches and loving my trigger. Last week's brouhaha about DFW and his unfinished novel in the New Yorker prompted me to stand attention and read this harrowing account of a troubled man. I may not be the same for a while.
