Short and Sweet (But Too Short!)

Notes from a Public Typewriter edited by Michael Gustafson and Oliver Uberti

Grade: A-

The owners of Literati Bookstore in Ann Arbor, Michigan left out a typewriter as an experiment, to see if people would use it. And people did. The owners saved the scraps of writing, and this book is a collection of the best bits, combined with a few short essays, and some appealing photographs.

It’s a lovely book but far too short. Had I bought it, I might not have felt I’d gotten my money’s worth. But I do think it’s worth he hour (roughly) of time that it takes to read.
