Thanks very much for the reading tips -- I'll proceed as you suggested. I
have (purchased, but not read yet) all of those books already, including
Tolson's biography -- except I don't have A Thief of Pierce, and Ketner's
book yet, so I'll get them. I also have three others: _Percyscapes_, _The
Last Physician_ and _The Last Catholic Novelist_ that I was going to read
after I finished Percy primary works...I'll save them for last, now.

If you have finished the fiction and want to go to the non fiction, I would
suggest putting Signposts by for the moment and reading Lost in the Cosmos
and Message in a Bottle. You will I think find the order in which you do
these readings almost as important at the readings themselves. i would then
(once more before going back to Signposts) get A Thief of Peirce and read
the Appendix first. After finishing this go on to Singposts and and the two
volumes of Conversations with Walker Percy. Finish up by reading Ken
Ketner's His Glassy Essence. If you are still enthused about Percy you mingt
then (but only then) fo on to the Biographies starting with Tolson's.
