I hadn't considered one way or another whether Keaton fit into the mythology. Good catch there, Ev. I agree completely. spaz -- This was a reread for me and I had a lot going on on the last day I was reading, but I was trying to get through it anyway. So it's possible that I didn't allow myself to soak it in as it deserved. I don't think it's a book that takes well to being pressed through, and I may have done it that injustice this time around as I was rereading more as a refresher than as an experience unto itself.
