WPA Slave Narratives

University of Virginia has an online version of the WPA slave narratives that made up Rawick's, ed., The American Slave: A Composite Autobiography.Index here. Amazing.

Another anecdote: I helped put the ms and peer reviews together for Reversing Sail, when I used to work at Cambridge Univ. Press..seems like a long time ago, but turns out they actually published it.

Current Reading List:
Letters 1928-1946 Isaiah Berlin
W, or The Memory of Childhood Georges Perec
The Sicilian Vespers Steven Runciman
Structure and Perversions Joel Dor
The Fragility of Goodness Martha Nussbaum
The Diary of Samuel Pepys, 1663
Encore Jacques Lacan
