Thanks, Frank, for posting the link. FYI (and for the interest of others), Parts Four and Five also now appear at Novels, Stories, and More. Moreover, there will probably be another ten or twelve installments before I go on to talking about other literary influences in my spiritual evolution and autobiography. (Gosh, is it ironic or what to say "spiritual" and "evolution" in the same sentence?)
The more I read, the more I am convinced by Proust's comments (which preface this short essay).
