FYI -- Nikki is a him -- not a her -- and a wonderful guy!

As for the Elie book -- I had the pleasure to read it on vacation a few 
weeks ago and I loved it.  Paul is a brilliant researcher, writer, and 
story teller -- and even better literary critic.

I knew Walker and wrote him over a 12 year period -- he was most open 
and kind to me.  So when Paul did not bless all things Percy I bristled 
a little as I read on -- until I had to agree he, Paul, was right on target.

Nikki made a few very positive remarks about the book several moths ago 
on this listserv.

Perhaps this posting will steer the conversation to a move Percyesque bent.
