Donald Hall is gone and he will not be replaced —
trust me. I came for a visit at his home a few years before his
passing and he came to the kitchen door, slowly, on two canes,
and my visit was unexpected, and he brought me in with a smile.
He wrote until the very end and this book of many dozens
of short essays will show forth. His generosity was of
another century.
