Both men, it may be said, love to hear themselves talk; Hughie's gregarious, garrulous Erie Smith whenever he holds forth on himself, his dearly departed pal Hughie, or the world at large, and the crabbed Krapp whenever he hauls out the recordings he made of himself at earlier points in his life..."
