i love old books,my dream is to one day own a copy of the first pressing of "This Side Of Paradise" by F Scott Fitzgerald,but its so expensive!
My roots are in Ireland - in Castlebar, Co.Mayo, and Waterville, Co.Kerry, three generations ago.
The furthest back I know are my great-great-grandparents. All of which came from Manchester and this is where the family stayed, until work meant my parents moved to Stockport and this is where I find myself now.
They talk about death as you talk about a fruit
They look at the sea as you look at a well
You never know what and where you will find stuff. Guy around the block was cleaning everything out and had a garage sale. I stopped the car as I saw a box of comics and knew that at one point he had kids that were older than I. I found a few issues for $1 each that were worth some bank but I saw laying out there a first edition copy of Hemmingway's For Whom the Bell Tolls. I also picked that up for $1.
I'm the bastard son of 100 maniacs.
as for comics,i was never a fan ,other than dick tracy, which i have some of them,mainly though just original chicago tribune editions that they were printed in.
