A magnificent obsession with apples
Joyce Park stashed this in History
I love stories about people who become interested in a topic and slowly but surely find their way to mastery of it... often with no extrinsic reward beyond the company of others with the same interest. This story is about a man who is writing a 7-volume tome about the apples of North America.
7 volumes about apples and he's restricting himself to North America?!
What, is he going to cover the other continents in future series??
