His emphasis

Ellis Sharp responds with a certain amount of perplexity to my review of the Frank Bascombe Trilogy. Unfortunately, due to a loss of formatting in the review, some quotations from the book appear to my own statements. For instance, I do not believe "that there are no transcendent themes in life" as Frank asserts. Indeed the review ends by observing one transcendent theme in Frank's life that makes the entire trilogy possible. Also, the long quotation he uses reveals a typo, so that has been fixed too.
