  1. I was glad to see Gordon Lish hasn’t changed much since I met him in 1986 at a writer’s conference in Pittsburgh. We spent many an afternoon in a bar with a few other attendees of the conference and Lish was completely forthcoming about his dislike of E.L. Doctrow’s work–the honoree of the conference. I had just read Dear Mr. Caputo and was mermerized by Lish–thought he was a much better writer than Doctrow. He’s an original.Sandra Adelmund (formerly Sandra Witt).
