Harvey Muses On The Lord

American Splendor author Harvey Peckar, the focus of a 2003 Hollywood film of the same name, has put quill to white sheet and mused on The Lord in the online magazine Ruminator.

Peckar starts with a narrative of Buckley's life based on Oliver Trager's book "Dig Infinity" but also adds his own wig bubbles on the nature of 20th century comedy and where Buckley fits in. The writing is refreshingly straight forward and a welcome respite from the flowering bouquets of . . .well, you get the idea.

Thanks to Oliver Trager for hipping us to this Peckar Flip.
