             Litterateur  RW  and  was  the  Doue  of  December
             Dale  Jensen  commented  that  this  new  book  is
             beautiful,  with  a  fabulous  selection  of  Jack
             Foley's  work      and  an  autobiographical  section
             that  represents  him  so  vividly  as  a  three-
             dimensional  person  (unlike  most  of  the  literary
             bios  that  we  see  around).  A  wonderful
             introduction  to  Jack  Foley  and  his  work,  and
             with all the new stuff from the last year or so it's
             one  of  the  most  welcome  books  I've  seen  in  a
             long time.
