Since this story won’t go die (sorry), I thought I’d share this Iowa alum’s frank and uncharitable opinion of Frank Conroy:
“He was a self-mythologizing and pitiful specimen. I like to reserve my wishes for death for the president and his cabinet, but contrary to everyone’s hard love whining, it is no loss whatsoever, either to humanity or American letters.”
Harsh? Sure, but isn’t it somewhat unflattering to describe a professional educator as a “pool shark” in their obituary?
