I'm not familiar with this book. Thank you for the introduction.

But I use my wall-trophies--the ancient cast iron I bought for a song at the swap meet, the long coveted and now possessed (by a song again!) copper preserving pan, the earthenware egg plate. I love both looking at them and using them.

I hear what you're saying though--owning them just to look at them is meaningless.

Are you familiar with Walker's short story, "Everyday Use"? http://www.cusd200.org/cms/lib7/IL01001538/Centricity/Domain/361/Everyday_Use.pdf

It's a good read.

christina, me too! love, love, love the copper preserving pan my partner loving repaired that i too use to preserve. those things are treasures, no? ones we do, actually, use. i was thinking more like those useless objects, avocado slicers, that sort of thing ;-p

also, YOU have a wonderful eye/ear for stories, this i know, and that alice walker story is juicy and lovely, thank you. have forwarded it to along to a couple of friends for their weekend reading.
