I had always thought of 52nd Street fans the cradle of bebop in the ‘40s. I had no idea its history as the street of music was so deep and rich. Arnold Shaw brings it to life.

George Eliot
“Poor fellow! I think he is in love with you.'

I am not aware of it. And to me it is one of the most odious things in a girl's life, that there must always be some supposition of falling in love coming between her and any man who is kind to her... I have no ground for the nonsensical vanity of fancying everybody who comes near me is in love with me.”
George Eliot

Edward Gorey
“If something doesn't creep into a drawing that you're not prepared for, you might as well not have drawn it.”
Edward Gorey, Ascending Peculiarity: Edward Gorey on Edward Gorey

Edward Gorey
“My mission in life is to make everybody as uneasy as possible. I think we should all be as uneasy as possible, because that's what the world is like.”
Edward Gorey, Ascending Peculiarity: Edward Gorey on Edward Gorey

John Cheever
“Oh, what can you do with a man like that? What can you do? How can you dissuade his eye in a crowd from seeking out the cheek with acne, the infirm hand; how can you teach him to respond to the inestimable greatness of the race, the harsh surface beauty of life; how can you put his finger for him on the obdurate truths before which fear and horror are powerless? The sea that morning was iridescent and dark. My wife and my sister were swimming--Diana and Helen--and I saw their uncovered heads, black and gold in the dark water. I saw them come out and I saw that they were naked, unshy, beautiful, and full of grace, and I watched the naked women walk out of the sea.”
John Cheever, The Stories of John Cheever

Tad Richards Glad to have you. Goodreads does have a way of adding friends at random, but in this case a fortuitous chance.

Marcy Hi Tad. Saw you're my friend on GR now, don't know if I'm supposed to do anything to confirm it so I'm just posting this as an acknowledgement.


Bradley I hope you are having a good day! =)
