Mamatas is a good writer, though Harlan was there decades ago and will more likely endure.

HARLAN'S STORY

Name: Jack Skillingstead Source: unca20090603.htm I guess I'm one of the "three or four" people who read the story pre-New Yorker. I have to say I really love the thing. Certainly it would not have disgraced the pages of that magazine. But none of that matters. As Harlan well knows, you write them ...
