My brother Ken visits and shows me the book he is reading - some poems by the American poet Weldon Kees. I haven't heard of him and to sample his work pick out a poem from the contents because of its personal appeal. It is called Problems of a Journalist. The first lines produces another quiver of recognition:"I want to get away somewhere and re-read Proust"
Said an editor on Fortune to a man on Time".I shall be reading some more Weldon Kees.
