********************** I was thinking about Willeford last night. I finished up Sallis's DIFFICULT LIVES, and he ends the book with a very insightful discussion of Himes's work. Sallis quotes from Himes's THE PRIMITIVE about an author character who has written a book titled I WAS LOOKING FOR A STREET. Willeford discusses Himes in WRITING AND OTHER BLOOD SPORTS. I wonder if Willeford got the title for one of his autobiographies from Himes?
