The Literary Life and Other Curiosities


by Robert Hendrickson


The Viking Press, New York. 1981. Hardcover in dust jacket. 406 pages. (7 X 9). Preface by the author. This title is rather like a literary book by Ripley. There are many interesting facts or trivia on the world of authors and books. Authors and titles from all over the world are examined and discussed in search of interesting stories. Recommended.


A Harvest Book/Harcourt Brace & Company, New York. 1994 (Revised and Expanded Edition). Trade paperback. 498 pages. (7 X 9). Preface to the revised edition. Preface to the first edition by the author. This is greatly expanded from the earlier edition with much new material and corrections. Still, highly recommended.
