Samarra Companion Guide Gets Page

Check Out Robert Saliba's
Samarra Companion Page 

The Companion Guide to Appointment in Samarra by Robert G. Saliba is a 32 page alphabetical glossary of the people, places, and things in John O'Hara's 1934 novel. What emerges from this exercise is a vivid description of 1930 America.

It is amazing how the young John O'Hara, in his late twenties when he wrote this masterpiece, was able to cram so much into a relatively short book.

The Guide is available as a free download or for $5 to cover the cost of printing and mailing a hard copy.
