"Schaubert recounts a mischievous man's eight decades in Illinois's Little Egypt region in his picaresque debut BELL HAMMERS. Remmy's life of constant schemes and pranks and a lifelong feud with classmate Jim Johnstone and the local oil drilling company proves consequential. This is a hoot."

Bell Hammers by Lancelot Schaubert
"A siege of oil and coal companies that destroy the land, leading up to a spectacular prank. A mid-western classic thru middle America in the 50's & 60's. This will leave you nostalgic & wanting to read more of those sometimes hard times. "

Quotes by Lancelot Schaubert  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“That's what marriage does, you know, holds a mirror up to every crack and crevice it finds hiding stuff down in your soul.”
Lancelot Schaubert, Bell Hammers

“Of course the boys had the last say. You don’t steal all the homing pigeons in the columbaria of a good night of Camelot and think you’re going to get away with it. So Remmy and a couple of others took to a couple of those poles with a camping hatchet. It was days and days of work for that gang of eight year olds, but they cut at it and cut at it and the thing finally fell with the great crash of an electrified redwood. All sparks and splinters. It cut out most of the service from the Triple-J Barbed Wire Telephone Company and started a small brush fire, so that was the end of that enterprise.”
Lancelot Schaubert, Bell Hammers

“Preacher said, "I want a nice clean marriage, no shots below the belt."
Remmy said, “Obviously you’ve never been on a honeymoon.”
Lancelot Schaubert, Bell Hammers

“Life is the flight of the alone to the alone.”
Plotinus

“That’s what happens when you study men: you find mare’s nests. I happen to believe that you can’t study men; you can only get to know them, which is quite a different thing. Because you study them, you want to make the lower orders govern the country and listen to classical music, which is balderdash. You also want to take away from them everything which makes life worth living and not only from them but from everyone except a parcel of prigs and professors.”
C.S. Lewis, The Space Trilogy: Out of the Silent Planet, Perelandra, That Hideous Strength

“I wish we could sometimes love the characters in real life as we love the characters in romances. There are a great many human souls whom we should accept more kindly, and even appreciate more clearly, if we simply thought of them as people in a story.”
G.K. Chesterton, What I Saw in America

“No man has the right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training. It is a shame for a man to grow old without seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable.”
Socrates

“The fairy tale is accused of giving children a false impression of the world they live in. But I think no literature that children could read gives them less of a false impression. I think what profess to be realistic stories for children are far more likely to deceive them. I never expected the real world to be like the fairy tales. I think that I did expect school to be like the school stories. The fantasies did not deceive me: the school stories did. All stories in which children have adventures and successes which are possible, in the sense that they do not break the laws of nature, but almost infinitely improbable, are in more danger than the fairy tales of raising false expectations…

This distinction holds for adult reading too. The dangerous fantasy is always superficially realistic. The real victim of wishful reverie does not batten on the Odyssey, The Tempest, or The Worm Ouroboros: he (or she) prefers stories about millionaires, irresistible beauties, posh hotels, palm beaches and bedroom scenes—things that really might happen, that ought to happen, that would have happened if the reader had had a fair chance. For, as I say, there are two kinds of longing. The one is an askesis, a spiritual exercise, and the other is a disease.”
C.S. Lewis, Of Other Worlds: Essays and Stories
