RARA-AVIS: Gardner

From: abc@wt.net
Date: 27 Mar 2002

Let me second BobT's recommendation of "Secrets of the Wolds's Best-Selling Writer; the Storytelling Techniques of Erle Stanley Gardner," a fascinating book. I haven't visited the University of Texas Humanities Research Center in years, but at one time there was a recreation of Gardner's study on one floor of the building. You couldn't go inside the study, but you could walk around it an look in through the windows. Before he died, Gardner made a recording that described the room's contents, and you could listen to that as you looked at his stuff. It was an interesting (and maybe a little spooky) experience.
