Presided over by Bailey himself and his helpmate, Nadine, it is a magnet that draws a wide variety of society's detritus, each with her own story to tell. One would call them misfits all, but in the magical aura of Bailey's Café, as the new year approaches, each becomes a universal creature of biblical stature. Magic, too touches every line of each one's story. For this we have only the consummate skill of Gloria Naylor to thank."

   Bibliophilia  Michael Griffith  Arcade Publishing  Hardcover  Fine  $21.00
 2003. Stated First Edition. A Novella and Stories. In the title novella, Bibliophilia, the unlikely protagonist is a postmenopausal university librarian pressed into reluctant duty as a 'sex cop' whose job is to troll the stacks for students intent on liilicit coupling among the classics. Her colleague at the circulation desk, an exchange student from Egypt, has come to the States to study hydrology but ends up learning far more about American sexual mores than his subject of choice. The stories are euqally zany and wide ranging …. featuring among others: a hair scientist that is going bald; a mother who hands her toddler to a mugger while she rummages for money in her purse…. What the fictions have in common is an astute mixture of comedy and pathos. Taking seemily ludicrous premises, Griffith manages, in surprising ways, to render them poignant." Book has one tiny edge bump on one corner otherwise in mint condition. DJ has a small amount of soil but looks great.
