an anecdote that will probably interest precisely one reader of this blog

Sophia Hawthorne used to call Herman Melville "Mr. Omoo." I find this rather charming. That is all.

What a shame that we no longer call the author after their books. Corsica Boswell. Monk Lewis. Mau-mau Wolfe. Blink Gladwell. Rabbit Updike. Caged Bird Angelou or Cool Drink Angelou? The latter, I think.
