Miss Doherty's assignment to her sophomore section of English at Richmond Hill High School was to write a single-page essay on "My Favorite Books." My response, back in 1960, was to award the palm to Heinrich Harrer's My Seven Years in Tibet, the book I had most recently read; mild approbation to Arthur Conan Doyle's Hound of the Baskervilles and mysteries in general; and short shrift to the entire genre of military books, which I said I just "couldn't stand."
