IMG_0967  Have you heard of this book?  this author?  Well I hadn’t heard of the author Jerome Chardyn or the book A Loaded Gun.  I had heard of Emily Dickinson, a New England poet of the 19th century.  Now I seem to be finding the author and his work and Emily Dickinson references everywhere.  I originally ordered the book partly because I was intrigued by the title and I was interested in learning more about  this poet.  I have been rewarded.  It has turned out to be a fascinating read.  Now I will turn to a fictional book about Emily Dickinson by the same author.
