By memory - which is not infallible - I remember preferring "Legs" and "Billy Phelan's Greatest Game" to "Ironweed", the latter seeming to be straining too hard. Maybe it's high time for a re-reading. I have lost touch with Wm. Kennedy over the last 10 years; what of his newer fiction might you recommend? (Who is this goddog; he sure knows his writers!)
