Thirty-Five Bucks Might Seem A Lot

But it’s 1268 pages of dazzling writing

Do you have any of The Library of America series? They’re beautifully bound books, on fine delicate paper. You think you’re holding a museum copy. They’re still adding to the library. I’ve got Philip Roth’s works, and Saul Bellow’s works.

I’ve got Flannery O’Connor’s too. If you read her in school, you’d remember. If you can’t remember, there are books of hers in any good bookstore you try. Do try.

Some day you might want all her stories and some essays of hers. This is the book you’ll want.
