"Joe lived awhile down the lake. We would visit him of an afternoon, Vi and I, and find him, a bear of a man, bearded mountain Buddha, writing on the porch of his one-room place in Ajijic. ... Most who have heard of him have done so through his books, Deer Hunting with Jesus, and Rainbow Pie. Deer Hunting is a curious work, a sleeper, that you can read the first time without noticing that it deserves a high place in American letters .... One day we dropped in and he said he had just found that he had cancer. It went fast. He died yesterday." (03/27/11)
