Wow.... As I write this, AG is reading in the background, and near the end of the magnificent "Little Gidding." The tapes include readings of "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock," "The Hippopotamus" and "Sweeney Among The Nightingales," the readings themselves done for the BBC in the early seventies. Positively delightful. Thanks, old friend. Many, many thanks.
Later: AG's reading of The Waste Land is a true tour de force, especially with Alec's capacity to perform a variety of voices in a way that Eliot in his own reading of the poem could never manage. Wonderful. Consider the Not-so-Good Doctor's day made.
