Not sure what to say?

Half way through Scar Lover and thought of him and found this site. A truly remarkable humanity gone from us.

Thanks for the stories, Mr. Crews.

Great writer,inspired my own tales,Sergio

aka "Shiner"

By reason of a strange combination of factors, including mere chance, I've met, interviewed, jammed with and otherwise gotten to know a fair number of luminary sorts of people in my life, but Harry Crews is the only one who ever intimidated me. He didn't do so by design or intent - it was just by reason of the walking power that was his. This was the case long before I read his book "A Childhood: The Biography of a Place," which is the single most moving piece of writing I have...

I mean this with utmost respect and gratitude for the example...

Herman Mack of Harry's best book CAR said,"I'm going to eat a car, because it's there." Harry Crews wrote about the South and its misfits " because they are there." Now cracks a noble and genous heart. May choirs of dark angels sing thee to thy rest. Your roommate from the Punic Wars, Ed Nagel
