Thanks to Sarah Manguso and her wonderful trip down memory lane, which took a little jaunt past Stump the Bookseller, and became a recollection in the Author’s Note section of the NYT. Sarah has several published books of her own, including the recently published Ongoingness: The End of a Diary. But a vague childhood memory nagged at her, and was not solved by a simple Google search.
And that is how she came to this blog. Her original query is posted as 169G, and was quickly solved. Sarah wasn’t sure how to get her hands on a book published in 1919, or if the joy of the quest wasn’t more powerful than the reunion might be. But, hey, we happen to have the book just sitting on our shelves. So we’re going to send it to her. Thanks for the publicity, Sarah!
