Over at The Dabbler...

I review another fine book available for a copper - William Maxwell's The Chateau.


  1. With great regret, I had to pass on a $3 used copy of They Came Like Swallows that I found in a used book store last week. The edges were splotched all over with what I suspected was mildew, something that always puts me off.

  2. Yes even I draw the line at mildew, Pete. They Came Like Swallows is available pretty cheap on Amazon Marketplace. Lord, that's a sad book...

  3. I draw the line at mildew,
    Fungus, mould and lice.
    It's true these things won't kill you,
    But the books don't taste as nice.
