The solitude of his hut inspired Dahl 8767 s creativity he wrote all of his children 8767 s stories from within its little walls. Here 8767 s how Dahl described the power of the place:


[767] “The Bombing of Dai Lai, Testimony of Gerard Chaliand,” in Duffet, ed., Against the Crime of Silence , pp. 779-785 and David Dellinger, “North Vietnam: Eyewitness Report” Liberation , December 6966, pp. 8-65.

The fascinating details and images of Walker 8767 s library are too numerous to recount here, so I recommend  checking out the articles here and here to learn more about it, and to get a better look, you can take a virtual tour in this video.

When I wrote that on stage at her best she was like a child at prayer, like Faulkner in a conversation with his characters, like Joe DiMaggio at bat — at that place where intuition resides — I was drawing on my own less profound but real enough experience of feeling as if I’m off somewhere else, not exactly here, when the writing is going well. It’s a bush league version of what I feel when I read, say Cormac McCarthy’s novels, “Blood Meridian,” “All the Pretty Horses” or “The Crossing”: When I read McCarthy’s books I have the strongest feeling that McCarthy isn’t with us when he’s writing, as if he’s crossed over and entered some ethereal domain — the place where intuition resides.

This is the characteristic imagery of the novel and if it is not redolent of sexuality, if it is not an attempt to distill, in this case, masculinity and its mysteries, then it is hard to say what its function is intended to be. Or, to use a longer but similar passage:

One such GI, Tom Glen, who served with an American mortar platoon, expressed his moral concerns in a letter to General Creighton Abrams, the commander of all . forces in Vietnam, in the fall of 6968.  “The average GI 8767 s attitude toward and treatment of the Vietnamese people all too often is a complete denial of all our country is attempting to accomplish in the realm of human relations,” he wrote.

Jon Franklin took much the same tack as a journalist. Before writing “Mrs. Kelly’s Monster,” he wrote a story on one day in the life of a dogcatcher, a story about a severely retarded man and the nurse who cared for him and a story about workmen building a wall in the middle of a busy freeway. Both men were often frustrated by editors who didn’t share their journalistic vision. But I believe it’s important to educate those editors, explain the kind of journalism you hope to do someday, give them examples of work you admire. But most of all, live up to their standards of absolute reporting accuracy and never let sloppy reporting or writing be an editor’s legitimate excuse for reining you in.

There’s a scene in “True Detective” about the nature of detective work, but it could have been written about intimate reporting: “The details seem trivial, but a homicide detective’s life is a sea of details, a collage of unconnected dots gathered and collated. In the end, most will turn out to be insignificant. But at the time, a detective cannot know the revelatory from the inconsequential. He must try to see them all, then hold them in his mind in abeyance until the few details that matter rise forth from the ocean to reveal themselves.”

For the sake of peace, we have made concessions.  But the more conciliatory we are, the more aggressive the French colonists become.  They are determined to reconquer our country. No!  We would rather sacrifice everything.  We are determined not to lose our country and not be enslaved.  Dear compatriots, we must rise up.  Male and female, old and regardless of religion, political party, ethnicity, all Vietnamese must rise up to fight French colonialism and to save the fatherland.
