message 8: by Casey

Casey From Fred Chappell's essay, "They Know Their Place" (_Appalachian Journal_ (2011) 38.2/3): 234): "In fiction, the most exhaustive practice of meditation upon place is probably Proust's _Remembrance of Things Past_, but there is a plethora, if not a surfeit, to be found in the pages of Henry James. This approach also admits of hybrid volumes that can be a mix of history, autobiography, and fictionalized material. Casey Clabough's _The Warrior's Path_ is a sterling example of the hybrid."

Monique thx so much for the friendship:)
