Literary diversions

Louis L’Amour, Oct. 23, 1960.

No, I don’t consider Louis L’Amour a great writer. I don’t even consider him a good writer. But I’m dedicated to presenting a variety of voices and not necessarily those I agree with. And he has some interesting things to say about the West.

P.S.: Note the similarity between Wyatt Earp and James Ellroy.
