QuotationThe poem ["And the Children of Birmingham"] in the New York Review [Of Books] got there via Bob Giroux, it was his idea to send it there. I would not have thought of it. Ping Ferry had suggested Commentary and I sent it to Bob [Giroux] who knows Podhoretz. By the way Bob sent me theri new Purdy novel. Very funny indeed.
