Goodenough Gismo

  • Gismo39
    This is the classic children's book, Goodenough Gismo, by Richmond I. Kelsey, published in 1948. Nearly unavailable in libraries and the collector's market, it is posted here with love as an "orphan work" so that it may be seen and appreciated -- and perhaps even republished, as it deserves to be. After you read this book, it won't surprise you to learn that Richmond Irwin Kelsey (1905-1987) was an accomplished artist, or that as Dick Kelsey, he was one of the great Disney art directors, breaking your heart with "Pinocchio," "Dumbo," and "Bambi."

Thanks for posting this. After reading this entry, I tracked down a copy of The New Inquisition (unfortunately out of print) and devoured it almost nonstop. I'm vastly impressed by the range and vitality of Wilson's thought, by the number of connections he is able to make (mostly "po" connections, as he would say), and by his gently ironic sense of humor. At first I thought of writing down memorable epigrams from the book, but gave up when I realized I'd be reproducing roughly half the text. He's a brilliant man, and I wish him well.
