Kriss A reader goes to a writer, not the other way. A writer is discussed, not a reader. The good writers are liked or disliked intensely. Rubbing shoulders with them do not make you outshine them. It is a reflected-glory after all. This book is readable for it tries to find the writers when they are strong and weak. One sees why a good writer avoids friendship with a not so good one.

Dmitri Surely Naupaul was an excellent writer, but his friend Theroux wrote a very good memoir. I appreciated his memories and insights of the 'great man'.
