I love The Velveteen Rabbit. But I keep forgetting the author’s name. That’s how I want my books to be.
The story is what’s important.
I don’t like seeing the author’s name above the title. I don’t like wadding through pages of praise getting to the text. What if after finishing the book I don’t like it? What’s wrong with me? Or am I being pre-programmed to like before I read?
Thank you Margery Williams. I might forget your name, but I’ll never forget your story.*
*In the first draft, I left off the s in Williams. Think that made the point.
