Baby, Think of Me Once in a While

In the March issue of Harper's magazine, there's a letter - a full-throated defense of J.R.R. Tolkien's work as highly nuanced "modern epics with a deep, abiding love of nature" - from one Gary Sandy of Woodland, California.

Am I the only OPC aficionado who was surprised to see Gary Sandy playing a cynical attorney in Michael Mann's "The Insider"?

Near as I can tell, you're pretty much the only OPC aficionado.

And damned proud of it.

In the upcoming issue, there’s a rebuttal from Richard Sanders, claiming that the “Chronicles of Narnia” surpasses Tolkien by creating “a fantasy world where turkeys can fly.”

The Atlantic Monthly letters page hasn't been the same since Gordon Jump died.
