A tall, wistful philosopher-poet from Mississippi, Gary is a bit like a Faulkner character, only cheerier. He is authored stories for the Associated Press, represented the Archbishop of Canterbury at the United Nations, and taught the #2 Chess Player in the world how to play chess when he was a boy. Gary loves to hike, camp, and fly-fish, has traveled a lot in Central Asia, and adores Joan of Arc. If you go to McSorley’s Pub located in Greenwich Village, New York, you will be able to see Gary’s picture on the wall!!
