Each day starts early and will be given over to swimming and skipping stones, berry picking and subduing armies of thistles. At one point Mr. Herman Melville comes over to enjoy a late night discussion of eternity over cigars.
With an introduction by Paul Auster, this delightful true-life story by a great American writer emerges from obscurity to shine a delightful light upon family life, then and now. The collection also includes Hawthorne's short stories "Young Goodman Brown," "The Minister's Black Veil," and "Rappaccini's Daughter."
