The Second Annual “Such Friends” Holiday Gift Giving Guide

Yes, it’s OCTOBER.

The next thing you know, it will be NOVEMBER.

And you know what that means.

Time to start thinking about the annual task that dare not speak its name—[Whisper] holiday gift giving!

Let’s say that you have some friends and/or family on your list who you know are book readers. Real books. Not just online listicles.

But which books have they read? Which authors’ biographies have they sought out? You don’t know.

I guarantee you they haven’t yet read “Such Friends”:  The Literary 1920s, Volumes I (1920), II (1921) and certainly not the newly available Volume III (1922).

Even your non-bookish friends will be enticed by the informal layout of “Such Friends,” designed by Lisa Thomson (LisaT2@comcast.net). You can dip in and out or settle in to read through the whole 12 months.

Now you can give them the gift of gossip about their favorite early 20th century writers and artists in either print or e-book formats from Amazon.com or Amazon.co.uk, or in the form of signed copies from Riverstone Books in Squirrel Hill, Pittsburgh, PA.

What’s that you say? Amazon has such long delivery times, you’re afraid your well-planned gifts will be sitting in a truck until January?

We can get you copies of any or all volumes of “Such Friends”:  The Literary 1920ssigned copies, at our direct sale discount—in just a few days. We’ve got plenty of inventory and a handy post office.

And if you live on any Pittsburgh Regional Transit bus route, I will personally deliver your signed copies to you.

So email me at kaydee@gypsyteacher.com and check a few friends or relations off that gift list now!

Early in the new year I will be talking about The Centenary of T. S. Eliot’s The Waste Land in the Osher Lifelong Learning program at the University of Pittsburgh, and The Literary 1920s in Paris and New York at the Osher program at Carnegie-Mellon University.

Another gift for your bookish friends, Manager as Muse, about Scribner’s editor Maxwell Perkins’ relationships with F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, and Thomas Wolfe, is also available on Amazon.com or Amazon.co.uk in both print and e-book versions.
