Susan Lenox and the Hoskins, Kazin, and Amis were from the library. I've even seen Garbo's movie version of Susan Lenox. The others were purchased at an odd establishment that sold newspapers and magazines from all around the world, racing tip sheets and various gamblers' aids for certain professional sports, and a lot of pornography. There were also many shelves devoted to Penguin, Oxford University Press, and other trade paperback imprints.
