When I was looking at the B and B website, I noticed that they were
pushing an expensive book by a fellow named Rebello. I also noticed
there is an expensive copy available on eBay, which I am not
inclined to get.
Still, I wonder why it's so expensive and what it's all about. I
don't know if it's still available through the B and B website, but
do wonder if it is worth pursuing. And speaking of the B and B--
Did JT ever make it there?? I am dying to know! I still aim to go
one day, though I know I have said that every year. How do we make
it a reality? I think we should organize a Northeastern US
gathering and plan such a thing. Let me know, offlist or on, if
interested for next year.
I did a Lizzie Borden search on Amazon.com and not much out there.
Speiring's book that declares Emma did it and the Sullivan one, of
course, which got me on this whole Lizzie thing. The Sourcebook,
which I have gotten out of the library and perused.
I cannot find my copy of "Private Disgrace", so may get a cheap copy
from eBay, unless someone on the list has an extra copy to give away
or sell. I remember liking it when I read it years ago--I thought
the epilepsy theory was very, very interesting, but not remembering
puzzling over the fact there were 2 murders.
I want to read it again, in light of the recent discussion. I am
not averse to the class issue, since I do think the author, coming
from the same strata of society as Lizzie, has a valid point. I
don't think you can discount her book in its entirety simply
because you object to its snobbishness.
