Apparently Roland is not going to do 5 books, so I will play on his truncated post:

944, FIVE Days to War: April 2 - 6, 1917, by Ernest R. Dupuy (read 22 Feb 1968)

4324. APRIL in Paris, by Michael Wallner Translated from the German by John Cullen (read 4 June 2007)

462. Left Bank Right Bank PARIS and Parisians, by Joseph A. Barry (read 1 July 1953)

522.The LEFT Hand Is the Dreamer, by Nancy Wilson Ross (read 5 Oct 1957)

4708. The Dead HAND The Untold Story of the Cold War Arms Race and Its Dangerous Legacy, by David E. Hoffman (read 16 May 2010) (Pulitzer Nonfiction prize in 2010)

( I think the play on the last title should be on a word therein other than "hand". and I also think the word played on should be the exact same as the word in the preceding title; in other words "woman" is not the same word as "women" and the plural of most words is not the same as the singular form of that word. Just my opinion.)

As I understand this game, a title should have as its emphasized word a word different from the word emphasized in the immedately prior title. Is that right? Even if it is the first title in one's posting.

"how does ʻA Later Day . . .ʻ follow from "Memoir of Casanova: the Eternal Questʻ? " (139, 142)

As Howard Cosell once said (and perhaps ONLY once): "I donʻt know".

I donʻt want to browse through the "Sandeen" entries again, but I think perhaps I found something with "eternal" in it, lost track of it, and entered something that didnʻt.
