Remember* this entire recitative about the Gift of Magic cover I could never find, no matter how often I scoured used book tables on Sixth Avenue, so much so that I actually thought it was possible I was going crazy?
My best friend had it in her room the entire past year, having no knowledge of my search, meaning to give it to me.
* you obviously completely do not have to remember
I am in the most recent Bookforum, writing on the wonderful world of Lois Duncan reissues. Killing Mr. Griffin — yes — makes an appearance. It looks like you can get a free issue, um, here? I have enormous issues with the covers — there is a NOOSE on the cover of Killing Mr. Griffin, which obvi makes no sense — but the updates ARE FASCINATING. (Cell phones! Crystal necklaces!)
If you have any great scans of Duncan covers, send and we’ll post. First to comment gets free copies of all the reissues in my possession!
