Your favorite online retailer says there’s no way that your pressies will arrive before the holidays?!
Fear not—“Such Friends” is here to help.
We can get you copies of Volumes I and II of “Such Friends”: The Literary 1920s—signed copies—in just a few days. We’ve got plenty of inventory and a handy post office. And if you live on any Allegheny County Port Authority bus route—I will personally hand deliver them.

Or support your local independent bookstore where you can walk in with an idea and walk out with books. For example, if you live anywhere near the Squirrel Hill neighborhood in Pittsburgh, PA—lucky you! There are signed copies of “Such Friends” available at Riverstone Books, near the intersection of Forbes and Murray Avenues.
“Such Friends” is the perfect gift for the literature lovers on your list. You have a good idea which books they like—but you really don’t know which ones they have or haven’t read.
They haven’t read this one!
By giving them “Such Friends”: The Literary 1920s you are giving them the gift of gossip about their favorite early 20th century novelists, short story writers, poets, and journalists.
So go through that list again and see which of your “such friends” would love a copy of these books. And then email me at email@example.com with their names and addresses.
And have a happy and healthy holiday.

On February 3rd, 2022, I will be talking about Pittsburgh’s own Gertrude Stein and the Literary 1920s at 7 pm at Riverstone Books.
