“Sod the wine, I want to suck on the writing. This man White is an instinctive writer, bloody rare to find one who actually pulls it off, as in still gets a meaning across with concision. Sharp arbitrage of speed and risk, closest thing I can think of to Cicero’s ‘motus continuum animi.’

Probably takes a drink or two to connect like that: he literally paints his senses on the page.”

Philip, thanks for putting this video up. It was fascinating and lovely to see the humility of Ray regarding his achievements in this tawdry time of celebrity. Thanks to Milt too for doing the video.

Cheers
