Hey Joseph and Anne,|
I tried the link but it seems that the page doesn't exist anymore. Such a pity. By the way, I think I recall the chapter. Is it the one with Joe flying and Theresa's stigmata? Yes, that was a palpable chapter indeed! It had a certain loaded-stillness to it (if that doesn't sound vague enough) like a single intense momment of silence I sometimes feel on hot summer nights.
: Hi Joseph,
: I am aware of the article and agree with
: your views on it. However, slight as it is,
: it did produce a surge in visitors to the
: Jerusalem Dreaming site which is a good
: thing. Every bit of publicity helps expand
: Whittemore readership.
: As it is some years since I last read the
: Quartet, I can't exactly recall the
: O'Sullivan Beare chapter in Jerusalem Poker,
: so will withold comment at this time. Sinai
: Tapestry was my first introduction to the
: writings of Whittemore and I fell for it
: utterly so perhaps it is my favorite of the
: Quartet, though I love all the separate
: books for different reasons.

: Hi Anne,
: A new blurb about EW has appeared; a pal of
: mine forwarded the link to me. The article
: is really pretty empty. That is to say,
: nothing said in the article is news to
: anyone who admires Whittemore's work. But
: here is the link nonetheless...
: While I'm here, I'll throw out my contention
: that the O'Sullivan Beare chapter of
: Jerusalem Poker is perhaps the finest piece
: of Whittemore craft. Though, part 1 of
: Sinai Tapestry remains my favorite
: Whittemore: order versus chaos and chaos
: prevails. So goes the quartet.
