Thanks, Lauren!

Dear Readers of Dr Percy,

Recently I “heard” this remarkable 
Essay on “Dostoevsky.”

I do not think we choose our influences. I think they choose us.

How could WP not choose Dostoevsky 

Listen and you will be hear the great John 
Cowper Powys words summon
Up Dostoevsky. 
And in turn while listening 
Why why Dr Percy devoured him!
Dostoevsky was as “alien” to his culture as WP was to ours.
He was our own Martian 👽 ?

( it’s the first reading but the rest
Are all as glorious)


Happy Fall to All

Lauren Berdy
