Writer / Writer

I just finished Double Lives by Lingeman. In it he discusses the friendships of famous authors. Some of my favourites were Melville and Hawthorne; James and Wharton. He really captured the flavour of their relationships. It was great fun.

I must admit that I didn't like the chapter on Kerouac/Cassidy/Ginsberg as much. I think there was too much in their relationship for the size he could give them. Also I didn't much like them as people
