I had the opportunity a few years ago to visit Covington looking for
Percy's gravesite. I stopped in at the local library and just asked if
anyone knew where it was. I was pleasantly surprised at how gracious and
helpful they were, immediately giving me great directions to the Abbey
"down the road". The folks in Covington do fondly remember and honor
Percy. I also look forward to this book.

I really enjoyed it, especially the interviews of those who lived in the
Covington area. It almost ends up being a social history of the
community and how WP fit into it, which is what is novel in the book, as
compared to other books I've read about WP.

I just checked out Walker Percy Remembered, a collection of remembrances
of WP by people still living who knew him fairly well. Nikki Barringer
is included. Any suggestions of what to expect?
