An email in March from Eric Wagner, which I forgot to post until now:
"On pg. 151 of my book during the interview I mention that Pound recommended reading forty books by Henry James to help one’s prose style. Bob replied, “Uh-huh. I’d say, Read Ulysses forty times.”
Eric's book that he mentions is An Insider's Guide to Robert Anton Wilson, which I'll probably re-read when I finish the Illuminatus! online reading group entries. The book includes an Illuminatus! timeline, useful in sorting out the complicated plot. Looks like I need to read Ulysses again, too.
Eric's book is put out by New Falcon, which has a big sale on RAW's books going on. Eric's book is also on sale; the Kindle is only $5.
