Contenuti: On discord arising from the excessive love of a hat --
On payment, and trouble, its inevitable gratuity --
On the burdens and cruelties of the road --
On the substitution of one angel, and one cause, for another --
On the observance of the fourth commandment among horse thieves --
On some peculiarities in the trading practices of northmen --
On the seizing of a low moment --
On a niceness of moral discernment uncommon among gentlemen of the road --
On anxieties arising from the inpermissibility, however unreasonable, of an elephant's rounding out a grayer quorum --
On the belated repayment of the gift of a pear --
On the unforeseen and annoying resemblance of a Bek's life to an ill-played game of Shatranj --
On a consignment of flesh --
On swimming to the library at the heart of the world --
On the melancholy duty of soldiers to contend with the messes left by kings --
On following the road to one's destiny, with the usual instrusions of violence and grace.
Responsabilità: Michael Chabon ; illustrated by Gary Gianni.
