Book of the Month Club - 1943

Lifted from a Bulowski book blog:

"After finishing Bulowski's Aftermath of a Lengthy Rejection Slip,  readers of Story could take advantage of a fabulous offer advertised by the Book-Of-The-Month-Club. New subscribers to the BOMC were offered a free copy of My Friend Flicka (1941) and its sequel (1943). Those familiar with the novel will note its thematic similarities to the work of Bukowski."

I belonged to the BOMC until the mid '80s. It was the far far pre-Kindle days version of getting someone else's random play list. I did happen across a lot of material that I would not have had the opportunity to enjoy otherwise.
