More Charles Portis...

Now I have finished "Norwood." Another wonderful novel. Charles Portis is truly a writer to amuse and fascinate. His lean "to-the-point" style is unembellished by the hackneyed adjectival blather of so many novelists. I guess I have to differentiate between "pop-best-seller-creators" and writers. Or is it "AUTHORS?" If this distinction were to be drawn, Charles Portis would fall into the "AUTHOR" category, one whose works will be read decades after their creation, having, as they do, stories centered on human life and character.
