I always thought Parnassus on Wheels was a better and more interesting novel than The Haunted Bookshop ... maybe Cerf and Klopfer felt the same way.

>I could never understand why the ML did not issue Parnassus On Wheels  and The Haunted Bookshop as a single volume, as it is one novel. In 1955, The Book Of The Month Cllub issued a double book dividend of both titles; Morley's story of a book world, long gone and never to return again.
