  1. Alan Watts—he's wonderful! (No, I won't ask to borrow; it will give me some direction the next time I go into Commonwealth Bookshop.)

  2. I've got that Watts somewhere in my collection, but this cover image was purloined off the World Wide Web. Have you ever heard audios of Watts holding forth? One of the university radio stations used to play him every Saturday morning: eloquent and extemporaneous -- and funny! I bet he's on YouTube. Have you read his autobiography? Called In My Own Way.
