Tattered but still lovely

We treasure old and sometimes obscure literature. We find that the language is rich, and the points of view are quirky and still entertaining.

I've pencilled a dashed line somewhere in the 1950s to separate 'old' and 'modern.' We'll list some of our favorite authors here as we move forward.

We grab up the old hardbacks at thrift stores and yard sales. The ones most people are willing to dispose of for 25 cents, because their value is hidden.

Non-fiction too. I've collected turn of the century medical tracts and manners manuals for the fun of hearing what was preached back then.
