Without Goodreads friends I would never have been introduced to this utterly charming novella written in 1917 Perhaps it is less known than other books which we classify as classics because Parnassus on Wheels does not bridge adult and children s fiction as do Treasure Island or Huckleberry Finn And it certainly isn t a windswept anguished romance peopled by lovely young women as do the Br nte sisters ilk But it certainly stands the test of time and for that alone I must award it five stars Think adventure Tom Sawyer for the middle aged the unglamorous the least likely pair that you could hug if you met them in person And booksa travelling gypsy caravan hauling classics and cookbooks poetry and philosophy to rural America where libraries were scarce and thirst for knowledge growing Add a gentle mare a friendly dog and descriptions of farm style turn of the century cooking well irresistible of course The style of writing is definitely formal reflecting the era almost prim actually but there are a few humorous earthy remarks easily missed because they too are couched in an indirect style By the bones of Hymen is a sly exclamation for which I can t find a modern euivalent but it definitely is meant as an inside joke as the honeymooners make their way to announce themselves with plenty of shock and awe There are archaic words like saleratus an unfortunate flavour permeating a hostess biscuitswhich we know as baking soda The language is dated yet endearing and part of the charm of this lovely little tale The cultivation of philosophic reflection was a new experience for meI was fanciful I guess and as romantic as a young henMiss McGill and Mr Mifflin will be hard to forget I recommend that you take the time to introduce yourselves
