About meWe are the books that six generations of one family read in their summer house on Cape Cod. The family called their house "the Big House." We books were scattered in almost every room of the house. In his book, aptly called The Big House, George Howe Colt provides a living history of his family's summer house, the Big House, from when it was built in 1903 to when it was sold years later near the turn of the century. In his book, he identifies many of us books by title and author. Editions are not identified. As an added note, George Howe Colt's spouse is the author Anne Fadiman.
About my libraryWe are the books that mothers and fathers read when they were children. Our pages curled with emotion when their children and their children's children picked us up and started reading too.
