QuotationIt has been a hot and busy summer, in which I have tried to get some work done. Possibly I have undertaken too many short things, like prefaces. But sometimes the chances are too good to miss, for instance a preface to a marvelous book on the furniture and art of the Shaker sect [Religion in Wood: A Book of Shaker Furniture by Edward Deming Andrews]. Do you know of them? I think Ernesto does. I will try to get copies for you and for him. Also copies of New Directions' new anthology.
