A local used bookstore recently closed after 25 years. They had a fantastic going-out-of-business sale. While part of me feels “guilty” for taking advantage of their sad circumstances, the rest (and logical) part of me knows that they needed to sell as many books as possible. Through these books, a bit of their entrepreneurial and intellectual spirit will live on. With that idea in mind, I’m doing a limited-run series where I’ll spotlight each of the volumes I “adopted” from this sweet little shop. Shine on, you bookish gems!
Today’s selection? Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys.
- TITLE: WIDE SARGASSO SEA
- AUTHOR: JEAN RHYS
- INTRODUCTION: FRANCIS WYNDHAM
- YEAR PUBLISHED:1966/FIRST PUBLISHED AS A NORTON PAPERBACK IN 1982
- W.W. NORTON & COMPANY
WHY I BOUGHT IT:
I didn’t have a copy of this short novel in my collection, and the price was, of course, right. Nothing deeper than that.
Thanks for reading! I hope you like the new series. Let me know your thoughts in the comments.
Sad about the store
Yes, it is!
