Booklicious: As Seen on eBay: 12 Literary Oddities

September 07, 2010


I've been meaning to write about this for a while, but for some reason I kept forgetting to bookmark it to remind myself later. Since my brain had nothing to do this weekend but decompress, however, I finally managed to hang onto the thought long enough to write about it. inspired by Salinger's toilet being put up for auction, Jacket Copy decided to trawl through eBay and see what other literary gems were up for grabs. And did they find some doozies or what! Here are my three favorites from their list - you can browse the rest here (and you'll definitely want to.) 

 The Gertrude Stein stein; perfect for when you need a little refreshment. 

"Albert Camus beaded earrings: the perfect accessory for the day you're thinking, 'Should I kill myself, or have a cup of coffee?'"

 A miniature version of Truman Capote's In Cold Blood. "For the little girl whose dollhouse is crying out for a true story of murder in the heartland."
