Hi, Everybody --
Thanks for the earlier suggestions on Merrill Skaggs' memorable line, but I've had no luck finding it ("books talk to each other") in Axes or in a couple of other sources I've looked at. Does anyone have other suggestions?
Also, can anyone direct me to the place where Cather remarks that she rarely recalls the exact sources or authors who have influenced her? I've lined up all the usual suspects, but am not locating it.
Thanks so much for sharing your collective knowledge!
