...through no effort of mine. Typepad truly works in mysterious ways. My apologies to the two or three of you who still read this blog.

Well, I wanted to say thanks for recommending The Country of the Pointed Firs. I haven’t read it yet, but I have it out from the library. I have long known about Cather’s admiration of “Miss Jewett,” but your post made me wonder why I never thought to read it. I will, soon.

Paul recommended the book to me. (Michael, Paul. Paul, Michael.) It sort of struck me as Maine’s Winesburg, Ohio - though Jewett’s book came first.

And as if Paul’s recommendation wasn’t enough, I found a copy that was a Dover Thrift Edition - which I’m always a sucker for.
