One. Book. Left.

With nothing but thanks to my good friend and Pulitzer Project brother-in-arms, Joshua Riley, I am now one last book away from having a complete Pulitzer collection. Of course, so is my good friend and Pulitzer Project brother-in-arms, Joshua Riley. Just like I did with Honey In the Horn, Joshua used the Internet to find a first edition of Upton Sinclair’s Dragon’s Teeth in Mishawaka, Indiana. By some bizarre twist of fate, they also had a second copy of it, plus Ernest Poole’s His Family!

In the meantime, I walked down the used bookstore a few blocks from my apartment, Howard’s Books, and found an elegantly-bound edition of Margaret Ayer Barnes’ Years of Grace. Then, I drove myself down to Printer’s Row in the South Loop of Chicago and found a second copy of Years of Grace!

That’s when a deal was struck: Joshua would buy Dragon’s Teeth and His Family for me if I bought Years of Grace for him. So guess what happened next…

One. Last. Book.

  1. I know where The Able McLaughlins is, within driving distance. Am I allowed to tell you? (It's not Babbitt's….)Likewise, another Honey in the Horn in IL or MI. Am I allowed to tell Josh?
