Jack O'Connell is first Amazon Review of MELVILLE BIOGRAPHY

Bless him! Jack O'Connell is the first reviewer of MELVILLE BIOGRAPHY on Amazon as well as the author of the little Facebook post I copied here. It's so important not to let the thugs get the first post! Or, just maybe, the hounds of hell have gone away in search of a newspaper or magazine where they can act according to their nature. You have no idea how hard it is to assume that your best work will once again be trashed. And how good it is to see a few kind comments.

Jack O'Connell in Worcester reads MELVILLE BIOGRAPHY

Jack O'Connell I was up much too late last night reading this magnificent book. Prof. Parker is that rarest of treasures: a brilliant and clear-eyed scholar AND a beautiful writer. (And the kindness extended to Jay Leyda is utterly refreshing!) Bravo!

This man, a stranger to me, is Creative Director Mill City Fabrications, Worcester, MA
I begin to think that the lynch mob led by Berman, Wineapple, Brodhead, Delbanco, and Schultz has disbanded: or maybe it is that the mainstream media can't destroy a book anymore the way they could in 1996 and 2002.
Kindness to Jay: I say that I was the only one who ever cut his toenails during the year and more he was dying. That may be what Jack O'Connell means. But I loved that man, and much of the book is a tribute to him.
