"Tell me again. What was it you liked about Walden?" pen and ink drawing, 1963. Charles Saxon's characters are from the upper class, much higher above Darrow's people. In this drawing, the wife wishes to know what was her husband liked about 'Walden'. One wonders if the husband really liked Walden, or if he thought he ought to have liked it.
