Winnie the Pooh (1926). A.A. Milne (1988-1956). Methuen. 1st Edition with original dust cover. “Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.” (Milne)
Written in stream of consciousness style, with 15 character narrators, it is about a road trip to bury Addie in her hometown in Mississippi. The trip is worse than any I can imagine. A very sad novel with very little hope, regardless it is a must read novel.
Shall I part my hair behind? Do I dare to eat a peach? I shall wear white flannel trousers, and walk upon the beach. I have heard the mermaids singing, each to each. I do not think they will sing to me. From The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock by T.S. Elliot My favorite lines of my favorite poem.
