American author. I am happy to be a child of the space age and I still set my sights on great things. I put humor in everything I write because that is my disposition. If I chronicle the 20th century it is only because I have not given up on the 21st.

Paul Hawkins has written a marvelous novella that I commend to you all. It is called "A Quite Place of One's Own". While Paul would not on his own call one of his works “the great American novel”, it is certainly in this vein. What we have here is an author of great literary skill and as a fellow Okie one who is quite knowledgeable about this time period (1939) and this part of the country, its people and its quirks. To me, that’s the very definition of a great American novel (though technically a novella).
