Allen Barra published a piece about GKC in the Wall Street Journal last week. When I edited Gilbert Magazine, Barra would occasionally write to me and even sent me an autographed copy of one of his books. Needless to say, this doesn't mean I know the man by any stretch, but based on that limited correspondence, free book, and things I've read by him, I'd say he's a real decent guy.
And it's a real decent piece, along with a new caricature of GKC. Check it out.
