Splashing around in books.
I like Dave Eggers a whole lot. Great writer and great human being.I remember spotting what looked like an advance reader copy of "A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius" at Second Story Books in Bethesda, Maryland. I asked why the price was so high and was fascinated by the story. I did not buy that copy, but read the memoir I did, later on.
Come to think of it, it was a bookstore on Georgetown Road, sadly gone (one of the few independent bookstores in Washington, DC). (I went to look at the books on my shelf, if by some miracle I did buy that particular edition. Sadly, not!)
I want to read this one as well - I received a copy recently.Happy New Year to You and Yours.
