I made this really cool find yesterday: the 1964 Avon edition of Brendan Behan’s Borstal Boy. Check out those rounded corners! I’ve never seen those before. The book was already on my list, it was priced at a ridiculously cheap $2, and it came from Open Books so the money’s going to a good cause. Buying it was an easy decision.

I confess I have been tempted to read this, but I think my immersion in The Loneliness of the Long-Distance Runner may have sated my interest in borstal lit.
