Timely to come across this line from Jonathan Williams's book of portraits, A Palpable Elysium. "It needs to be said that Duncan was the absolute master of the campy imagination. Otherwise, the academic and boring straight-arrows will suddenly try to claim him for their own and startle us with the revelation that Mr. Lowell is not the only Robert around..." I spent part of Sunday asking Lisa about more stories like the one of RD liking Conan the Barbarian. It turns out he was also a big fan of the smurfs.
