I'd like to thank the Goodreads reviewer who recently concluded her review of Arms with this advice:"If you're into history, the gun control debate, and a bit of swearing, this is a fantastic book for you."

Ernest Hemingway
“The first draft of anything is shit.”
Ernest Hemingway

John Steinbeck
“Literature was not promulgated by a pale and emasculated critical priesthood singing their litanies in empty churches - nor is it a game for the cloistered elect, the tinhorn mendicants of low calorie despair.

Literature is as old as speech. It grew out of human need for it, and it has not changed except to become more needed.

The skalds, the bards, the writers are not separate and exclusive. From the beginning, their functions, their duties, their responsibilities have been decreed by our species.

--speech at the Nobel Banquet at the City Hall in Stockholm, December 10, 1962”
John Steinbeck
