Booking Through Thursday, on Saturday …

… This week’s question is suggested by Island Editions:

Do you have a favourite book, now out of print, that you would like to see become available again? (I have several…)

Mine is The Agony and the Ego (click on the title for secondhand amazon copies …) which is an utterly wonderful book (Penguin PLEASE reprint). It is a series of essays by writers of fiction on how it is and what it is to write; on why they do it; where their inspiration comes from; on what they love and what they hate about writing … and so so much more. And it isn’t at all about ego, although it is a bit about agony … .

Here is my rather hopeless photograph of the cover:

About Angela

I write fiction about the difficulty we have when we try to say what's in our hearts.

    Thank you, Angela, for a great suggestion. I am going to search out a copy as well. It’s so frustrating when you wish to recommend a good book to friends and other readers only to find that it’s no longer available. Frustrating for the author as well when interested readers have to resort to buying used copies for which the deserving author no longer receives royalties.

    Honestly, I didn’t even know Noel Streitfield was a huge children’s author until I went searching for a copy. Guess I was so far into Laura Ingalls Wilder that I hadn’t eyes for anything else, lol. Thanks for the comment! ~ L
