"Books are the plane, and the train, and the road. They are the destination, and the journey. They are home."
- Anna Quindlen
Five fucking stars. Went into this with middling-to-low expectations, and I think it may be the best short story collection I have ever read.
My copy is a duplicate of the first edition, set in the Kennerley typeface that was created specifically for this book, featuring the original 1911 photo illustrations and illuminated letters, and printed on thick textured paper. Beautiful.
