The Society was trying to find good homes for books which were part of the translator William Rice’s collection (including novels, dictionaries, text books and technical books). I knew Bill some 15 years ago when I sold him Apple Macintosh equipment which supported Russian. It’s a small world.
I also bought a copy of Anna Stepanova’s book ‘Love and Tears‘.
