Thank you, Lacy, for a beautiful experience of Reynolds Price the man, and the writer. Just last week I sent an email to Doris Betts requesting resources in literature for what I have identified as "beneficent violence" related to medical practice. She referred me to Reynolds Price. I always go to Narrative to begin searches for writers I'm not as familiar with as I should be. So here I sit reading your words, Lacy, one month and one day after the death of Reynolds Price.
