    I have wanted to get the Patrick Henry Jones book for a while. Seeing it here prompted me to buy it for 41 bucks. Pretty painful price for an e-book, but I have read about a quarter of it today and it has been very good so far.

      I haven’t read it, but will do so when I get the chance. I’ve said a number of times that Mark is one of my favorite writers. I am curious as to how he approaches writing a biography.
