Kantor
1951

It’s Friday and I have another novel of the 50s for everyone to enjoy. I was just admiring the cover art, when I realized this was written by MacKinlay Kantor. Kantor has quite a resume, including a Pulitzer Prize in 1956 for the novel Andersonville. I can’t speak to this particular novel, but I have read Andersonville and it is excellent.

  1. Did anyone else read the title of this book and then immediately sing in their heads “oh-oh oh oh-oh-oh,” ala M.C. Hammer style?

    Of course, laughter (out loud at my desk) soon followed.

  2. What, dare I ask, is a ‘sing-song girl’? And why does the woman on the front cover look so pasty white?
