On a recent trip up to Portland, OR, I found a pretty special book by a pretty special person at a pretty special book store. It all came together at once and I was quite elated. The book was a first edition copy of Short Drive, Sweet Chariot. The person is a dear literary friend Mister William Saroyan who once roamed the streets of San Francisco. The bookstore is one of the best and last of it’s kind in the country, the magnificent Powell’s Books in Portland, OR. It was a great moment when I opened up the book to find a photograph of the author mustache and all. Quite a mug shot….
