Happy Summer Solstice, everyone!

Now this is amusing:

Mr Michener, as timeless as a stack of National Geographics, is the ultimate Summer Writer. Just as one goes back to the cottage in Maine, so one goes back to one's Michener.

-- Wilfrid Sheed

I think I had my Michener period in the late 60s and early 70s. My favorites were Hawaii and The Source. Ha! I don't think I have the attention span for his books these days!


  1. Ah, Michener and James Clavell. I once consumed everything they wrote. That brings back those beach days of my long-lost youth.

  2. Yes, me too, BooCat!
