Re: “Weekly Reading: Wandering through The Savage Detectives

Oh man I love Roberto bolano too. I can't put my finger on why (hats off to you who can), I just love reading it. I've actually got a note in my phone to name all my future dogs after characters in his novels.

Re: “Author of KLANDESTINE to speak at the National Civil Rights Museum

This is the event Black Lives Matter should protest. It's absolutely absurd the Civil Rights Museum would allow anyone to fertilize and water the lie, James Earl Ray assassinated Dr. King.

The Civil Rights Museum is not under new management.

Re: “Greg Sestero, author/actor, to appear at the Mid-South Book Festival

Indie Memphis sometimes screens THE ROOM. Maybe they can arrange a screening this summer so you can catch up. While you don't need to have seen the movie to enjoy the book, you will enjoy the book so much more after experiencing THE ROOM.

Re: “Remembering Franny and Zooey and Jim.

I still have a couple of cassette tapes left by my old friend at 282 Garland. I put them in the tape deck and pray that the tape monster doesn't mangle them into an unruly mess. He'd be embarrassed to know we are still talking about him, the rockstar in him would be a little upset if we didn't.

Re: “Books Read: Booker Prize Edition

You're making me want to read "this horrible piece of filth" to find out for myself. I'm a huge fan of noir. The darker, the better. Oft times I find dark subjects an interesting study in the struggle for power-most often the stuggle is with oneself, as it sounds in this book.

Re: “Destiny's Child

Eustace Conway III was a counselor at Camp Ridgecrest for Boys when I attended in 1948 and 1949. It is good to learn more about him and Eustace Conway IV, I had often wondered if they were related. Eustace was a great counselor.

Re: “Grievous Angel

I remember Gram as one of the older kids in the neighborhood. Avis's big brother. I knew Avis well, but only met Gram once. He seemed very, very protective of his sister. Gram was in a local band that I suppose could have been considered the house band at his father's club, the Derry Down. I have nothing but good memories of the Derry Down. If we hadn't had a place like it in Winter Haven, most of us would have just been out getting in trouble. Avis (the sister, not the mother) was an angel. I don't know what else I can say about her. Her death was an absolute tragedy. I guess tragedy was a part of the Parson's family. May they all rest in peace.

Re: “Mark Greaney on the Move

I just ordered all four of your Gray Man books from Barnes & Noble. Needless to say . . . I really like all of your work with the Tom Clancy characters. Thank you for the many hours of reading enjoyment.

Re: “Bucket List, Memphis Style

Poor Smiity. Jesus said, a prophet is not without honor except in his home town. Memphis will never appreciate you until you are gone and the stank becomes unbearable.
