One for the Books

Nothing gets Clara scurrying faster than an orderly bookshelf. Everything must come off, including book jackets. She finds Louis Menand’s The Metaphysical Club to be simply uproarious when disjacketed and opened to the section on American pluralism.


Sometimes Clara enjoys books in a more traditional fashion, especially if we’re reading our favorite nursery rhyme:

Three little ghostesses,

Sitting on postesses,

Eating buttered toastesses,

Greasing their fistesses,

Up to their wristesses,

Oh, what beastesses

To make such feastesses!
