The web page of the ABPress based in Oxford and Sibiu, soon open for business: muses and misspells on its books. Randomly decrepit, stiff joints, possibly neo-bankrupt: so out of touch it needs help, but so analogue it cannot be helped. Nonetheless temperamentally enthusiastic, moderately irascible.
This was Edna Ferber’s first book, a collection of witty and observational short stories published in 1912. Ferber was better known for her novels written in the 1920s: So Big, which won the Pulitzer Prize, and Show Boat, later a mould-breaking Broadway hit by Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein.
