“After years of finding children’s books tucked away in authors’ bibliographies (Graham Greene wrote children’s books!), followed by quick disappointment (how can they be out of print?), I realized that I was having this same frustrating revelation over and over. And when I would bring these discoveries up with my friends, they would have the same reaction (John Updike wrote children’s books! How can they be out of print?)”
Today I discovered a new blog which is worth a lengthy exploration: We Too Were Children, Mr. Barrie: Being A Compendium Of Children’s Books by Twentieth Century “Adult” Authors Currently Out of Print.
When I have more time today I’m going to find out if Nabokov ever wrote a kid’s book, or William Burroughs for that matter.
