Stories from LOA

Via Whispering Gums, an online series of which I was unfamiliar--the current edition being Kate Chopin's "A Respectable Woman.

  1. Thanks, Steven, for sharing this discovery. I am now a weekly subscriber to the LOA offerings, which are wonderful additions to my reading schedule.

    Someday, if I win the lottery, I think I will buy a complete collection of all LOA titles. The books are beautiful editions. I hope that LOA can keep its promise of keeping their books "in print" permanently.

  3. Dear RT,

    I love the LOA books and have a great many of them. I'm looking to rejoin and collect the rest because they make such a nice uniform edition and it becomes very easy for me to find certain things. For example, the Nathaneal West volume allows me to have all four major works in one volume. They're in the process of having a complete Philip Roth, and have a mostly complete Faulkner. Again, wonderful series with some interesting authors one might not otherwise find.

    shalom,

    Steven

  4. Steven,

    Thanks for posting the LoA link. I just signed up for the story of the week.

    Frankly I'm almost afraid to go browsing through the LoA offerings, if you know what I mean.

  5. Dear Fred,

    I have shelves and shelves and shelves of understanding whereof you speak--All of Henry James, All of Willa Cather, Herman Melville, Poe, Hawthorne, and a (probably too large) collection of William Dean Howells. Oh, yes, I understand completely and yet, I fly very close to that flame, thinking--I'll reup my subscription and get all the rest, in time. . .

    Ah well.

    shalom,

    Steven

  6. Dear RT,

    What I should have said yesterday and failed to do so, is that while I appreciate the link and the attention, the original did come from the Whispering Gum site and he had some nice comments on the story du jour. My apologies for not making this clearer. And my thanks to you for the link.

    shalom,

    Steven

  7. Steven,

    I think I'll just atay with the short stories for awhile and maybe take a peek at the offerings around my birthday.
