Several years ago I had the honor of interviewing Mr. Murray at his home. In the midst of our talk he glanced up and pointed across the room at a massive bookshelf lining one wall. "Get that book for me," he said, pointing. Mystified, I walked over and, following his directions, got the book in question and walked back. "Go to page" something, he said. When I got there, he began reciting the words I was reading. He recited the entire page. Mr. Murray later allowed me to meet him at the Strand Bookstore, where he told me several books I must read, including Andre Malraux's "Man's Fate," one of the most moving and evocative books I have ever digested. Meeting and spending even that little time with Mr. Murray - even now I can't imagine calling him anything else - was a seminal moment in my development as a writer and a human being. Our world is smaller with him gone.
