    Music hall was one of the glories of Victorian England. Sentimental, vulgar, class-conscious, but always patriotic and on the side of the underdog, it held a mirror to the audiences hopes and fears, and sometimes the general absurdity of life.

    My Old Man and the Sea was that book for the last decade for me. And he'd say, "Joe, when we've get a decent stake, you're going back there to the States and go to school. That means getting up early all right and going to bed early too. Add My Old Man to your own personal library. We'd keep right on running out toward the mountains and then my old man would yell "Hey Joe!

    If the book is signed by the author, tick the relevant box. Everybody cheered Kzar when he went by and he sure was one swell looking horse. Seems like when they get started, they don't leave a guy nothing. He'd busted away from his old gang out at Maisons and seemed to like just sitting around on the boulevard with me. He wishes that the fishermen who mocked him earlier were present to witness his victory.

    It is dangerous, as My old man book might become tangled with another boat. What kind of fish does Santiago first catch? He sure was fun and he done his work so hard and he'd finish up with a regular whirring that'd drive the sweat out on his face like water and then sling the rope at the tree and come over and sit down with me and lean hack against the tree with the towel and a sweater wrapped around his neck. My old man had a big lot of money after that race and he took to coming into Paris oftener. So why did Hemingway end his story like that?
