Books/Authors mentioned in A Lion Among Men:
Goethe, epigraph
"I Consider My Luck" (from the anthology Brothers and Beasts) / Eric Kraft

One of my favorite passages from A Lion Among Men:
page 291: [Brrr] didn't remember that a mere book might reek of sex, possibility, fecundity. Yet a book has a ripe furrow and a yielding spine, he thought, and the nuances to be teased from its pages are nearly infinite in their variety and coquettish appeal. And what new life can emerge from a book. Any book, maybe."
