My Dad used to make me go out in the pre dawn hours to break the boat out through the ice  to set decoys  so we could shoot stuff that my Mom did not want to cook, clean or mess with in any way, shape or form.
   She didn't come down from the mountains to help put some dumb Army Air Corp boy through engineering college stuff for that. {#Lol}

  The best part of it was that it was a 2 hour drive until  we got there. On the way we had the priviledge of listening to perhaps the greatest jazz DJ ever, the God like Felix Grant.

I gave my Dad "Mexico" by Michener right after he got out of the skilled nursing place last year, just because it was around since  I'd got it for 50 cents at a yard sale. {#Lol}I imagine it was like a  neurological kick start after staring at the ceiling for 3 months.

 Anyway, "Chesapeake"  is easily in my all time top 10 favorite novels.

But inferior!
His books are like this.............................................

I think that each book has its special style. Other is a great low key thriller. Lady is sweet...until. And Crowned Heads is actually 4 stories that tie together, with movie stars involved in horrible situations. I may just have to reread them again. 

A lot of his stuff came before Stephen King was a household name and hack. This was some trailblazing writing at the time.

Wrote "Harvest Home" which I regularly name as my fave scary book, alongside The Shining.
Also the fabulous The Other, Lady, and Crowned Heads.

A magnificent 1-2-3-4 punch of genius, which he then couldn't follow up on, and later died of lung cancer in '91. He was also an actor, which is how most folks know him. I coincidentally met his brother once, who described him as "really weird."

One of mine passed 46 years ago yesterday: T.H. White.  He wrote The Once and Future King, a book which I first read in high school and which influenced me profoundly.
