Imprint[S.l.] : [s.n.]. 1938I
QuotationRight this minute I am inclined to think G. Greene's book about Mexico is better than Brighton Rock, and also to agree with Gibney that Confidential Agent is (better than Brighton Rock). I was surprised to find out Greene is 11 years older than I am-37, now. I thought he was the same age, or 2 or 3 years older. I hope Auden is at least 11 years older than I am.
Quotation SourceRun to the mountain: The Story of a Vocation. The journals of Thomas Merton, Volume 1, 1939-1941.; Edited by Patrick Hart, O.C.S.O. / San Francisco : Harper Collins. 1995, p. 378
