Letters

I see the relationships built by LeRoy with his literary elite not as pandering but as a natural development of his gift. I sense his ability to allow people like Dennis Cooper and Dorothy Allison into his barricaded soul is possible because their written words have formed a path of understanding and trust.

LeRoy offers readers a template to place over their own stories. He proves our vocabulary is not deficient to express the complexities of trauma and the beauty in which our minds find a place for our experience in order to sustain hope. There is "something graceful and startling in the language." Right on, Joy Press, for a great piece!

A QUESTION OF UPBRINGING

Ed Park's Atlantis movie review was a veiled masterpiece ["The Waterboy: My Antediluvian Baby, I Love You," June 19]! Stream of consciousness sprinkled generously with biting sarcasm and arcane references—for adults only (unlike the movie). The most subtle and hilarious part was the last paragraph.I read it thrice.

CORRECTION

The musical transcriptions that accompanied Matt Glaser's article "Satchmo, the Philosopher" (June 12) were by John McGann.
