ROBERT WALSER ~








Since his rediscovery in the 1970s
Walser's star and influence has
only been rising

And what a cool picture it is, Bob.
He enjoyed walking, Mr. Walser did.

And what is it, Bob, that so intrigues us about this writer?
I've owned a couple of the short story collections for years
and I keep returning to them and it's like I never read them before.
It's almost like when first discovering E.A. Poe when you were a kid.
You just can't get enough of him..I bet his essays in this new collection
are just as timeless as his stories.

Waiting for the snowstorm that never came.

And, yes, you were lucky to get that foundation in when you did.
And On Bear's Head was pulled down when last we talked..

All best,
John

John,

On Bear's Head is the Gita, stronger every year.

Walser was mad, thus in some ways free. Yet mad.
So they say.

I much like your association with Poe, the tell-tale heart, like the snow that comes and doesn't come.

The beat goes on.

stay warm, Bob
