I am in total agreement about Second Coming being his "best" - and I am but a lowly man.

Thanks for posting the link Karey.  I don't even think it's his best book.  Here's a discussion topic that might wake our list up:  Which book is WP's best? What makes you think so?  For pure pleasure I like THE SECOND COMING best (l like the love story: I'm a girl that way!).  But as for his best, I cast my vote with LANCELOT. It marks a crucial turning point in his writing, has as strong a philosophical underpinning as MOVIEGOER, and as far as pure literary merit, it's crafted better than the others--even MOVIEGOER.  I'd place MOVIEGOER second.  What do the rest of y'all think?
