Several new books have arrived at my door over the past few weeks, and I have NO idea how they got there. Most of them are pulp-related, or are histories of the romance genre, or the history of the 1920s or 1930s. As I plow through these, I'll be posting reviews.
Here are some of the latest acquisitions:
LOVE ON THE RACKS: A History of American Romance Comics. By Michelle Nolan.
DOC SAVAGE: SKULL ISLAND. By Will Murray.
THE STORK CLUB: America's Most Famous Nightspot and the Lost World of Cafe Society. By Ralph Blumenthal.
LAST CALL: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition. By Daniel Okrent
VOICES OF PROTEST: Huey Long, Father Coughlin, and the Great Depression. By Alan Brinkley
These are just a fraction of what I've collected over the past few months. I've been trying to make a dent in reading the ever-growing pile of books, along with reading issues of LOVE STORY as well as magazines that were in competition with LS and going through Daisy's personal papers and journals. And working like crazy at my day job.
Now you guys know why I haven't been blogging as much. Now will you stop complaining? :)
