Other Web Sites about Paul Gallico

Paul Gallico on Wikipedia

Second hand books

ABE books
probably the best source of second-hand books on the Internet - my personal favourite.
ebay or ebay uk
always worth a try. They have a fair-sized collection of second hand books, and they normally have a few by Gallico.

Films and TV programs

The Internet Movie Database
if you can't find out about a film here, it probably can't be found anywhere.
Verna: USO Girl

Articles and Sports Writing by Paul Gallico

Farewell to the Babe
an admiration of Babe Didrikson - probably the greatest female athlete ever. (Sadly, this link no longer works - it's a shame, because it was an excellent article.)
St Francis of Assisi
a discussion of what the Saint meant to Gallico; "a groping for an expression of some of those qualities in him that have touched me deeply in recent years". It is not clear when and where this was originally written.

Other miscellaneous links

The Literature of Stan Barstow
My other "Literature of..." site.
Creative Americans by Carl Van Vechten
in the Library of Congress. Includes a portrait of Paul Gallico, which was also used as the frontispiece to Farewell to Sport.
Music inspired by The Snow Goose
by the Seventies rock band Camel.
Lou Gehrig
20th Century American Bestsellers Database
A fantastic resource, put together and maintained by undergraduates and graduate students at several US universities. This is a wonderful example of how the Internet should be used.
Xenu's Link Sleuth
A neat, free, program for checking links, which works extremely well!
