Sunday papers: Christopher Isherwood


"It's much easier to turn hate into love than to turn fear into love."

On the turntable: Ry Cooder, "I, Flathead"

Unfortunately, so true. The Time article was tasty, made me hungry for the whole book. Seems like a philosopher I could identify with: "God make me pure--but just not yet."

Thanks!

It's ironic that you found the Pico Iyer article since that's where i found the quote. I've been enjoying reading his older pieces. Interesting (and somewhat sad) how the world hasn't changed much in 20-some years.
