Beginning a History of the Alexandrian Library

Deep in my study, as the outer world resounded with the havoc of war, or limped in slow recovery from its frightful toll, I thought I would write the history of the Alexandrian Library, itself the perfect victim of military madness and of the frenzy of the heart and soul of man.

I also occasionally post annotations that I make as I read Cormac McCarthy at "Reading Cormac McCarthy."
