The Book of the Most Precious Substance is one of the standout stories comes toward the end of the collection. True to the collection’s title, each piece exhibits a strong, clearly defined voice, delivered in a range of forms. The stories we tell ourselves are not formed in a vacuum, but they are also not set in stone; these writers illustrate that stories are meant to be interrogated, and truths are meant to be told.
Editorial View Of The Book of the Most Precious Substance
We were at the big annual book sale in the community college gymnasium on Lexington near Grammercy Park. Most book dealers specialized in an area of study: military history, revolutionary literature, modern first editions. I didnt. I specialized in books that interested me and were profitable. I liked books that were beautiful, with unusual bindings or remarkable illustrations. I liked obscure topics, like lesser-known religions or forgotten corners of history. I liked books about art. I liked counterculture. On my table at the moment were a dozen books from the 1800s with forgettable words and good bindings priced at fifty bucks each; a few bird and butterfly guides from the same era with original lithographs priced at two hundred each; a travelogue written
by a Russian visitor to Tibet in 1901 (the only copy Id ever seen or heard of) for five hundred; a little stack of British pulp fiction from the forties and fifties; another stack of perverted and wonderful Olympia Press editions in green paper wrappers (no Nabokov or Miller, sadly, the gems of the run); a handful of gossipy out-of-print paperbacks about groupies and musicians Id found in a thrift shop a few weeks before; a book on Haitian voodoo from the 1930s with remarkable photographs; and a series of letter pressed pamphlets on Southern cooking published by the Charleston Junior League from the 1930s through the 1960s. My most expensive book was fifteen hundred bucks, a rare and beautiful survey of a little-known Swedish artist named Hannah Kline. My cheapest, the British paperbacks, were twenty bucks each.
