...on the biography.

I've exchanged a couple of e-mails with Michael Lloyd, author of Bull of Heaven. He was kind enough to share some of his process in approaching the biography.

As I read BoH and composed the e-mails to Lloyd, I had an insight: I need to find some narrative thread(s) to make the story of Isaac's life of compelling interest to people other than "Isaac Bonewits fans." I never heard of Eddie Buczynski before I learned of Lloyd's book. I only knew about Bull of Heaven when Margot Adler mentioned it to me, and I wanted to see how someone else handled a biography of a pagan figure. Now I'm anxious to continue reading the book because I've become invested in Buczynski's story.

I need to do something similar with Isaac's story. I've got a couple of ideas, but they need to percolate a bit more as I gather more facts.

I also wrapped up a series of interviews with Deborah Lipp. In theory, there's more I could ask her, but at some point I have to mark a particular research avenue as "done" and move on to the next thing.

I think this is a great idea! Narrative lures people in.
