The amazing Herman Wouk

When you think that there are US Presidents 30 years younger than this guy who can't begin to express themselves half as clearly, this becomes inspirational!
"A general conversion among the boys was once effected by the late excellent Mr. Fletcher: one poor boy only excepted, who unfortunately resisted the influence of the Holy Spirit, for which he was severely flogged; which did not fail of the desired effect, and impressed proper notions of religion on his mind."

I've always like Herman Wouk.

My favorite book by him is City Boy...a kind of coming of age tale set in the Bronx during the 1920's. It was written in 1949, and held up very well.

Wouk has just turned 102.
