Marcel Proust’s Manuscripts
Yes yes yes.
Occupational hazards of writing.
Just got the 3rd book in the Books of Elsewhere Series, The Second Spy. I’m loving these books, I’ve already finished The Shadow and Spellbound beautifully written and so creepy. Can’t put it down partly because I’m too afraid and partly because it’s a page turning story. Good thing I’ve got the forth book, The Strangers, ready to go.
Delighted to know that my books are being read by a bear named Bertrand.

Faulkner House Books, Pirate’s Alley, New Orleans.
Apparently Faulkner and his upstairs neighbor, artist William Spratling, liked to fire their Daisy pump-action BB gun at pedestrians in the alley below. Hitting a nun was worth ten points.
The only thing better than finding your books in a legendary bookstore is finding them on an endcap in really great company…
…and accompanied by a special handwritten sign.
