The Cupboard's "Parable and Lies" by Jesse Ball

Someone on Library Thing asked for my copy of this quarter-page sized chapbook; someone who's a huge fan of Jesse Ball. I have mixed feelings about parting with my copy. I mean, I like this book quite a bit. However, I wouldn't want to keep a huge fan from his own copy.

I haven't written him back yet. I'm thinking of making a photocopy and sending that to him for free, or making a photocopy, keeping it for myself and sending my copy to the Big Fan.

This has nothing to do with the book whatsoever and all to do with the ephemeral nature of chapbooks. I feel as though I'm talking about trading baseball cards?

Anyway, stay tuned for an actual review. I feel obligated now that I've talked about the physical book and not about its contents.
