O'Hara in Scaife's Harbour

JOH Scaife's Fav Author;
'Appointment' His Tops

In an interview in the February issue of Vanity Fair (http://www.vanityfair.com/), Richard Mellon Scaife, billionaire bankroller of conservative and right-wing causes, tells interviewer Michael Joseph Gross that JOH is his favourite writer and Appointment in Samarra is his favourite book.

'Appointment in Samarra is the story of a rich young man [Julian English] who yields to the temptation of his most self-sabatoging urges -- but whose private fear of judgment and retribution for his rashness drives him to a self-destruction that neither he nor anyone who knows him ever fully understands. (And the rich young man [like Scaife] is from Pennsylvania),' Gross notes.
