> I have just signed up for the Percy list and been encouraged to
> introduce myself.  Briefly, I read Walker Percy's early novels in the
> 60s when I was in college, and they meant an enormous amount to me.  I
> continued reading his books as they came out; and, as a school teacher
> and then a college professor, I have found occasional opportunites to
> teach Percy.  Recently, I completed a book project on the American
> philosopher Stanley Cavell, who, I think, shares a noteworthy spiritual
> kinship with Percy.  For that reason, Percy (and The Moviegoer in
> particular) became significant terms of comparison in writing that book.
> That writing also made me eager to find further opportunities to think,
> talk, teach, and write about Walker Percy.  This list looks as though it
> may be helpful in that search.
