QuotationNow to other things for a moment: I am in the middle of The Wisdom of the Heart and it is you at your best. There is very fine material everywhere, one insight on top of another. The opening piece starting from Lawrence is full of arresting thought, most important for a writer to read. When you write as you do in the thing on Benno you are at your very best, this is marvelous. As I say I am going along with you all the way with The Wisdom of the Heart. They sent me also the Colossus which I already had but had lent to someone, and lent books never come back. And The Time of the Assassins, which is going to mean much.
