On Poets & Writers:
Fiction writer Reynolds Price, who died last Thursday at the age of seventy-seven, is the subject of a new documentary, Pass It On, which takes a look at the impact the late author had on his students at Duke University, where he taught writing and the poetry of Milton for more than fifty years.
I enjoyed this little 4 minute intro to the documentary:
The man looks like a writer and teacher (in his youth, in his old age), talks like one and–damnation–was one, all his life. I'm envious that of his having found and lived his passion. BTW–my chapcha this time is "chess." Did those druggies in the basement of Blogger run out of LSD?
