From the Preface Foreword of Let Us Now Praise Famous Men:

Night was his [James Agee's] time. In Alabama he worked I don't know how late. Some parts of Let Us Now Praise Famous Men read as though they were written on the spot at night. Later, in a small house in Frenchtown, New Jersey, the work, I think, was largely night-written. Literally the result shows this; some of the sections read best at night, far in the night.

I think I will like this book.
