Happy birthday Wallace Stegner

The American writer Wallace Stegner was born one hundred years ago today."There was a time up there in Idaho when everything was wrong... Did you come down out of that into some restful 30° angle and live happily ever after?" - Angle of Repose (1971)

(Parenthetically, today's also our 14th wedding anniversary)

I always thought the title of that book was Angel of Repose, even when I was reading it, until I came to that line. "Oh, ANGLE of repose" . . . Happy Anniversary
