Via our pals over at LISNews we find a story about an overdue book returned after 94 years. After having dealt with so many weird returned item situations I imagine this doesn’t strike most of us as dramatically it does the general public.
However, it reminds me of the play “Underneath the Lintel”. Evidently the show is a great big off Broadway hit. It is only natural then that a theater company here in Seattle did its own version recently. It’s about a Librarian that becomes obsessed with finding who returned an overdue book. A VERY overdue book. I don’t know how long it will be posted, but here is an article about the show from the Seattle PI.
