Books and buildings!

Is there a way in which my architectural history degree assists me in doing my job as a literary agent? Um…no. But two of my favorite things come together in this article about great library staircases in the United States. Off to figure out a good reason to stop by Caltech’s Astronomy library other than just to walk up and down the stairs…



  1. Well...you got me interested and I clicked over and wow! Those are cool staircases. So then I had to do a search for the two staircases I like, Multnomah County Library in Portland, OR - no dice though, and Nashville Public Library. There is one of NPL, but I can't get the URL to work so if you really want to see it, you can do a google image search for Nashville Public Library Staircase.

  2. Re: Architectural history degree + working as a literary agent.

    Have you represented any books (specifically fiction) that include architectural history?

    I'm reminded of AUSTERLITZ by W. G. Sebald. I loved that book!

  3. What are you waiting for? I would just go in to admire the staircase and then begin my ascent. Beautiful.

  4. Wow. Gorgeous. Thanks for sharing those.


  5. Banned complain !! Complaining only causes life and mind become more severe. Enjoy the rhythm of the problems faced. No matter ga life, not a problem not learn, so enjoy it :)
