Harry Crews

There is a God. The great Harry Crews on film with The Hawk is Dying.

He was one of the authors I had the privilege of promoting in their British edition.

Forget Bellow and Carlos Fuentes; forget Woodstein and Pencourt; forget Piers Read and Melvyn Bragg (Lord Bragg to you); maybe not forget David Lodge and Malcolm Bradbury, certainly not forget Elmore Leonard ...

But Mr Crews - he was the real deal.

If you haven't, read him.

Enuff said.
