Gone, but not forgotten

Andrew Malcolm remembers William F. Buckley (and that's some memory).

TC Boyle remembers Dutton's Brentwood (and that's some mid-90s style in the photo).

The Guardian remembers literary activist Ronald Segal, who founded the Penguin African Library, and Robin Moore, whose book The Green Berets spawned the John Wayne movie and a not-at-all-peace-and-love 1966 pop song.

The great alt-country music chronicler No Depression Magazine will pass into memory, come spring.

Who remembers a 1947 Robert Frost conversation with Dartmouth students? Transcripts of the long-forgotten lecture and Q&A will be published by Literary Imagination.
