QuotationMoved deeply and to tears by Pierre van der Meer de Walcheren's book Rencontres, which he kindly sent, saying rightly in the dedication that we are "clos" - and it is certainly true, for I am somehow of the family of Bloy. The section on Bloy is fine and even more moving is the one on Raissa Maritain.
