Susan McCloskey is the wife of David Kelley. She taught English Lit. at Princeton before starting a firm that teachs businessmen how to write.

Her lecture were about Ellsworth Tooney, James Taggart and Lillian Reardan.

On Tooney she made the point that Tooney is a character who you enjoy when he is on the scene. He is interesting in a way that Taggart is not. Ms McCloskey made the point that from Taggart's first appearance he repels the reader. Tooney is fun to watch.
