By George! A new publication

Readers with library cards or $205 to spare are advised to check out the Dictionary of Literary Biography Vol. 303: Radical and Reform Writers (ISBN: 0-7876-6840-0) (click here for the Table of Contents). I've got a chapter on V.F. Calverton (1900-1940) in this hefty tome. The man was a whirlwind of writing and activity, not all of it useful; who knows what he would have been like in an age of blogging and e-mail. If alive today, the 104 year-old could purchase a copy from Amazon here. Calverton's drinking, like a man on a perpetual stag do, ensured he barely made it out of the 1930s.

Some of the chapters in the original proposal, like Alan Johnson on Sidney Hook, don't appear to have materialised, but this still looks like a strong reference source if you need to know about this kind of writer.

Help me Dude, I think I'm lost..... I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw him in a car lot yesterday, which is really strange because the last time I saw him was in the supermarket. No honest really, he was right there in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender". He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a San Diego cosmetic surgery doctor ,to fit into those blue suede shoes of yours. But Elvis said in the Ghetto nobody can afford a San Diego plastic surgery doctor. Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger. Then I'm gonna go round and see Michael Jackson and we're gonna watch a waaaay cool make-over show featuring some Tijuana dentists on the TV in the back of my Hummer. And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . . "You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on " Strange day or what? :-)
