El Jefe

Been looking for a place to pay my respects. I have to say the Onion piece Nance linked to is as fine a (parodic) eulogy as he could like. Screw Updike et al. -- this was, arguably, *the* great man of American letters of the last forty years. And you are abso-damned-lutely right. As a lapsed historian, I can tell you already that it's the genre novelists of their day -- the Walpoles, the Dickenses, the Gaskells, the Hugos -- who we turn to already for centuries past and it will be no less true of our own times. We got to walk with Leonard for a long time and ar very, very lucky we did because he consistently, wisely, and kindly showed us, us.
