Re: RARA-AVIS: Automated reminder about The Readings

taken directly from my suggestions, which came directly from the syllabus
of my course this term. So I will have lots to say about Highsmith and
Himes, and I'll let everyone know what my students' responses are as well.
My class starts Maltese Falcon on Tuesday. Let me just say that I have
never looked forward to teaching as much as I do this semester. I hope
people on the list will take the time to read the next few novels. They
are *so* worth it. M-

P.S. it is my new mission in life to get Day Keene back into print (well,
not all his work, but some of the good stuff). Anyone w/ bright ideas on
how I might accomplish/encourage this, let me know.
