Interview with Charles Murray

WHEN WE THINK OF QUAKER WRITERS, Charles Murray, author of the Bell Curve and last year’s bestseller Coming Apart, is probably not a name that occurs to most Friends.

I guess I thought he was Jewish. Like most Murrays.

A lot of Murrays are Irish Catholic.

Dear God, it was a joke. Rather a good one I thought. Ah, unless you are doing a joke of your own about the Irish being dim. Feeble joke if so.
