Hi Kelsey,

  The New York Public Library has a complete run of the BOMC News. I will check my office tomorrow to see if I have a photocopy of the review of Shadows on the Rock. Stay tuned.

Dear Kelsey,


Perhaps Mark will have photocopies and will send you what he has, but once upon a time, I know that I got some copies of Book of the Month Club News from the Harry Ransom Center. I’m not at home and won’t be for three weeks or I’d go poke around to see if I could find. Looking at the UT-Austin library catalog, I see that they have copies of it formerly owned by the Knopfs and Christopher Morley as well as in their general stacks, although like so many serials, cataloging is pretty  vague.

Hello Cather scholars!


I'm working on a project on Shadows on the Rock. Does anyone have a PDF / photograph / text copy of the Book-of-the-Month Club News review for Shadows, or what archive might have a copy? I know that Mark Madigan discusses it in his Cather Studies Vol. 7 article, but I was curious to see the full text.
