A fond and appreciative biography by RBís first son, who pretty much followed
in his footsteps at Exeter, Harvard, and writing for magazines in NYC. His son
is a big fan and this book is just the sort of biography fans of RB like me are
bound to relish. I was surprised to learn that RB was a tea toter and an enthusiastic
supporter of Prohibition. I was less surprised to learn he was a pacifist, had
thoroughly middle-class Victorian moral values, and was religious. According to NB,
RB died of a brain hemorrhage, not cirrhosis of the liver.
