Re: “Book Review: 'Radio Free Vermont' by Bill McKibben

Sue Halpern maybe?

Re: “Book Review: 'Radio Free Vermont' by Bill McKibben

The book is dedicated "For Spunky Knowsalot". Who could that be? Some enterprising reporter should ask Bill. Or is it a secretly coded private nod to someone important in his life?

Re: “Warren Zevon's Massive Book Collection Is for Sale

Hi linnilue. Thanks for your question.

As Mary Collins commented, the majority of the books are in the process of being catalogued for online sale. There is a selection of books on the shelves at the barn. But the best way to peruse the collection is to email Mary for the catalog: mary@shinecommunications.org

Re: “Warren Zevon's Massive Book Collection Is for Sale

I'm kinda speechless. Know he valued words deeply, but not as much as his daughter and his legacy. May they land where and sell such that they do the most good.

Re: “Warren Zevon's Massive Book Collection Is for Sale

I'm confused. Are you allowed to show up on Sundays for their flea market to look through the boxes? Or make an appointment?

Re: “Warren Zevon's Massive Book Collection Is for Sale

Loved his works. His doc on making The Wind was extremely moving.

Barnet, and West Barnet are located in Caledonia, not Orange County.

Re: “Warren Zevon's Massive Book Collection Is for Sale

Thanks Daniel Bolles. Nice story.

The only thing not correctly listed is that the books are not on the shelves for anyone's perusal. They are being catalogued and will be available to review via that list and through Ebay. Please do not show up at Brookview hoping for a tour or to make a purchase.

If you wish to receive the catalog listing, please email: mary@shinecommunications.org

Re: “'Moriah': A Work of Dark Fiction Set in Vermont

This looks like it might be a fun read, but I'm not sure how Vermont was any more dark and impoverished than any other place after the Civil War, or, if it was, how anyone alive now would know how well the book captures that darkness.

Re: “'Moriah': A Work of Dark Fiction Set in Vermont

Can we assume Butch Cassidy plays a role in the novel or was the cover image chosen at random by someone in the art department that didn't realize who it is?

Re: “'Moriah': A Work of Dark Fiction Set in Vermont

Can we assume that, since his image is on the cover of the novel, that Butch Cassidy plays a role in the story? Or did the art department not realize the picture they chose to represent Flood is actually that of a famous gunslinger?

Re: “Book Review: In the Country of the Blind by Edward Hoagland

Edward Hoagland writing about his blindness is most compelling. Keep in mind he also has written a great deal about his stuttering. The website of The Stuttering Foundation has a biographical article on Hoagland and his stuttering. This is the link:

Re: “Book Review: Our Revolution: A Future to Believe In, Sen. Bernie Sanders

Long after the blatant myth of "Bernie Bros" has been disproven, Kevin Kelley insists on perpetuating it. Nice "journalism."

Re: “Book Review: Our Revolution: A Future to Believe In, Sen. Bernie Sanders

John, it's true that Bernie's 1998 book was called "An Outsider in the House," but in this review, the "earlier tome" to which Kevin Kelley is referring is Bernie's 2015 book, "An Outsider in the White House."

Re: “Book Review: Our Revolution: A Future to Believe In, Sen. Bernie Sanders

His first book was entitled "An Outsider in the House," not the White House.

Re: “A Burlington Collection of Rare Books Is Museum Bound

This collector must be a hermit. I just can't believe she knows of nobody who collects these publishers trade bindings. What of Herbert Kleist of Boston who gave his huge collection to the Boston Public Library many decades ago. Then there were my two mentors, Charles Gullans and John Espey at UCLA that launched Margaret Amstrong and a host of other designers with three exhibitions in 1968 and 1970. I celebrated my Golden Anniversary collecting such treasures 1966 to 2016 with a slide show/talk at San Francisco's Roxburghe club. Title was "How to Judge a Book by its Cover". Then their is Richard Minsky of Hudson New York who, with moi as his principal advisor, has put together five collections of cloth bindings, published color illustrated books on them, and placed them in major American universities. Even the MET has started to collect fine examples for its Watson Library. Since I live in the Bay Area, I can hardly wait to see the collection when it gets to SF.
