I will allow you to guess the sort of books that were presented on the table beneath the very large sign reading “History”

Choose one

A – Wide range of books about the development of the Jewish people and our institutions, including several volumes of commentary on those events

B – Mediocre range of books about the same

C - No more than 25 books about the Holocaust, including both versions of Art Speigleman's very excellent (but not exactly history with a capital H) "Mause"

As the book-fair boss must have thought: “Well, they both start with the letter 'H,' hyuck."
