James A. Michener

Another obituary from my scrapbook. James A. Michener wrote huge novels that never really appealed to me, but they clearly appealed to some. I do find the descriptions of his books in the Daily Telegraph obituary hilarious: "Alaska (1980) begins with a family of mastodons and devotes 100 pages to the titanic life history of a sock-eyed salmon." Now you see why I thought the books were not for me!
