UFOs, nuclear weapons -- and apologies

The site has been down, owing to server overload. Some of that is the traffic generated since the four pieces I posted yesterday, but most of it has nothing to do with this site but with another dealing with UFOs and nuclear weapons.

My webmaster suggests that as a way of increasing traffic, and I guess it would be.

In the meantime, knowing the content my visitors -- from 50 countries, 33% from the U.S., 21% from Canada, and all you others from across the planet -- and I are interested in, he is looking into an alternative server.

There have also been issues for those of you registering on my site and wishing to comment on the posts. More to follow on that.

In the meantime, you can still, if you wish, comment on Facebook, on LinkedIn, and on Twitter @lindaleith.

I apologize for the disruption and thank you for your patience.

A Literary Friendship: Hazzard on Greene, by Linda Leith

Shirley Hazzard's book has the effect of sending us back to the novels of Greene and of Hazzard herself, but that has more do with the quality of her writing than with any literary genre. It also has something to do with her love of her subject.
