I started this at sixteen and continued in fits and starts. In the falls and winters some would play pick up basketball in The Alley. In Julys and Augusts some would head to Tompkinsville pool. I spent my time one finger typing on my white Royal portable. The beginning is the most important part.
Here some of my likings (in no order of importance): Cathedral, The Great Gatsby, Couples, Cheevers: The Biography, Zen and The Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, The Gospel According to Matthew, Hard Times, The Spycatcher, Sweet Land Stories, The Journal of John Cheevers, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, The Sun Also Rises, The Power of Positive Thinking
