The World’s Most Dangerous Bookstore

Bookgasm: Reading Material to Get Excited About » Blog Archive » The World’s Most Dangerous Bookstore

This link and post has nothing to do with Wolfe or Stout but is about a bookstore so is “kinda” on topic. For the most part The Bookman sounds like quite an interesting place. Wish I had known about it when I was out there a few years ago, I’d have loved to visit and browse. Considering this article was originally published in 1996 I suspect it’s long gone by now though…

Bartleby, the Scrivener by Herman Melville

Bartleby, the Scrivener by Herman Melville – Project Gutenberg

Bartleby, the Scrivener by Herman Melville

This book has nothing to do with Wolfe or Stout at all but is an interesting book I think Stout fans might enjoy. Saw a mention of it in a mystery story (Mr. Clubb and Mr. Chuff by Peter Straub which can be found it the collection Murder For Revenge, edited by Otto Penzler) that I read the other day and decided to look it up and see if I could find it as it sounded interesting. Tis a very strange book. Fairly short and one I will read again in a few months after I have had time to digest it a bit more. It does make you think.
