I finally got around to reading that Esquire profile of Roger Ebert. I didn’t need to read it to understand what he is and where he is–I’ve been praising him here since the beginning for his writing and I read his journals and reviews fairly regularly–so there’s no huge revelation or anything. But, wow. What an article. What a life.
He writes like a madman on Twitter, posting again and again and again, and so I follow that now too. I don’t know what else to say about this guy, but what a writer. Here’s his journal about the Esquire article. Amazing. I want and hope for him to keep on writing for a very long time.
