Interesting collection. I like your perspectives. Coffeezombie asked about Confederacy of Dunces (also a favorite of mine) and I'm curious about what you think.

Had a good time looking through your catalog. Lot of interesting stuff in there. You English doctorate wannabes sure know how to pick'em. What did you think of "Confederacy of Dunces" (a favorite of mine we happen to share)?

So if Shelley is Tupac, is Byron like like Notorious B.I.G? Or does the analogy just sort of fall apart at that point?

Happy cataloging.
Oh, fun! Definitely. I'm sure you write enticing course descriptions. E-mail's
yay for English phd candidates! are you the melvin who writes those awesome reviews on eighteenth-century novels and the like?
