  1. I've cherished the works of St. Exupery since reading "Wind, Sand and Stars." I hope you will offer that book in the future.
    The alternate titles are hilarious..and thanks for the answers (I missed on the Shakespeare).

  3. WOW! These are absolutely fantastic. I've always had that slightly unnerving thought about our cherished Curious George. I'm glad to see I'm not alone. Also, the "Infinite Jest" jab was appropriate. Is it bad that I just can't trudge through his novels?

  4. Oh, what fun! Can I play too? How 'bout "The Executioner Needs New Glasses" by Dickens, or "A Guy's First Love is His Mother" by D. H. Lawrence, or "Hey Pa! Hands off my girl!" by Dostoevsky?
    ("A Tale of Two Cities" "Sons and Lovers" "The Brothers Karamazov"--but you knew that!)

  6. i like DFW's nonfiction work better ... it's a gas. maybe because it was EDITED for magazines. His piece on going on cruise ships was hilarious. (I think it was "A supposedly fun thing I'll never do again." Also his piece on going to a state fair.
