I did leave the house late this morning to get a mailer and then to visit a thrift store near where we live. I found these used books this morning-
“Green” a novel by Frances Sherwood (I bought this novel for twenty-five cents. I have another book by Sherwood in our library titled, "The Book of Splendor". This novel titled "Green" grabbed my attention because she mentions Allen Ginsberg and Jack Kerouac. The novel looks like a coming of age novel that takes place in California in the late 1950's.)
“The Fatal Shore: The Epic of Australia’s Founding” by Robert Hughes (I already have this book, but bought this edition to sell someday. I have many books by Robert Hughes in our library. Hughes recently passed away. I have near me Hughes book, "American Visions: The Epic History Of Art In America". I have in my main study Robert Hughes book, "Rome: A Cultural, Visual, And Personal History".)
“All The Pretty Horses” a novel by Cormac McCarthy (I already have this novel in our book collection. I bought this paperback to sell someday.)
“Two Years Before the Mast And Twenty-Four Years After” by R. H. Dana, Jr. (I read this book when I was in Jr. High 1967 Hawthorne Calif..)
“A Prayer For Owen Meany” a novel by John Irving (A first edition hardback with nice cover for fifty cents.)
I read many years ago “A Prayer For Owen Meany” by Irving. When we lived in Texas back in the 1980’s I went through a phrase where I read several novels by John Irving over a period of several months. I have not read any of Irving’s recent novels, even though I collect them for our library.
Well I suppose I will close to drift.
This afternoon I have been reading in Amazon descriptions of books written by the German philosopher Peter Sloterdijk.
