“Surely most men are destroyed, but there are others who like pillars of fire guide frightened men through the darkness.”
-- Samuel Hamilton, East of Eden

Callie, this is one of my all-time favorites. I read it for the first time just a few years ago for a graduate class and was blown away. If you'd like to read my paper on Samuel Hamilton I'll send it along. He's one of my favorite literary characters.


Callie Thanks Len,

I'd definitely be interested in reading your paper after I finish the book. Do send it along!
