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."

Ian McEwan is my literary hero of the moment. I'm halfway through "Saturday." It's the first consciously post-9/11 novel I've read. As you might expect he handles it with brilliance and great insight.

"Atonement" is the best book I've read in the past several years, hands-down. It's everything a novel should be. It may have a flaw, but I haven't found it.
