Literary Mentions – A Noble Gift

Howard with Robert and Parents

I love to discover mentions of books and authors in whatever book I’m currently reading.

Here is one from Cemetery Dance

by Lincoln Child and Douglas Preston

Pendergast has made a present of rare editions to archivist Wren.

Wren examined the books one after the other. “Hmm. A pre-publication Outsider, with the trial green dustwrapper. Always Comes Evening–he plucked off the jacket to examine the cover–“with the variant spine. And a leather-bound Shunned House . . . containing Barlow’s signature on the front pastedown. Dated Mexico City, not long before his suicide. A remarkable association copy.” Wren raised his eyebrows as he carefully put down the books. “I spoke too rashly. A noble gift indeed.”
