I'm afraid I'm not going to be able to resist this tempting offer
all that much longer. The Library of America catalog is THE place to check first when looking for authoritative editions of great American (as in "from the United States") writers and writing. Granted, the stated subscription price, $30.45 (book price plus S&H) per volume, is about $10 higher than Library of America titles available from Buy.com, and I'm most unthrilled about being charged that amount automatically at intervals no more specific than "approximately every other month"...but ohoohhooohhh! Exclusive slipcases instead of dustjackets--and given that the dustjackets are all so irrepressively ugly, this is a serious improvement. I think I've been won over.
