    Another appeal for anyone who may have a link to a copy of this great article. It is the reading for my class this week. I found a link to one of those sites that takes you "inside" the book and I was able to read it that way. I made copies out of my book for my day class (and some had the book). My online class includes students from as far away as Afghanistan and this "inside" link isn't working for everyone.

    HELP! Please.

    Is this the "inside" one you found? rockbottom posted it on a thread in August.

    Those work for me, am sending them out. But I'd also love a link to the actual article that I can cut and paste. I can't seem to find one of those.

    Near as I can tell, Moddy, the piece isn't warehoused in GQ's online archive. Nor is it available online from its reprint in the BASW 1998 collection.

    You might need to send your students near and far to their local library or used bookstore if you can't ship out photocopies to them all.

    If those links above don't work, the scanner will become my friend. I have strongly recommended all buy and read the book anyway.

    I think scanning or copying and distributing stories to a class is a perfectly reasonable fair-use approach. When I was teaching, I did the same. It's SOP at universities everywhere to copy single pieces out of collections rather than ask kids to buy entire anthologies unless absolutely necessary.

    In service of the greater good - and the shaping and sharpening of the young American mind - I think Mr. Pierce would be OK with it.

    Well, it will lead to more sales for him. That's for sure.
    I have a browsing shelf in my office. Many of my students have looked through his book and they get a strong recommendation every time.

    I'm near finishing "Hard to Forget" and about to get into "Sports Guy."

    I heart Charlie Pierce.
