Cupid (Lester), A Pickpocket's Tale (Schwabach)

Thought A Pickpocket's Tale was interesting and well-written (even the use of dialect didn't bother me as it usually does-- there was a very clear gloassaray in the back), but it is an odd period in history (1730 London and New York), so I think I'm going to pass. It just wouldn't get the readership here.

Lester's Cupid was an interesting story, but the style seemed inconsistent with the subject matter, and I'm just not sure. There is a huge interest in mythological tales, so I will probably buy it eventually, but I didn't like it as much as something like Stephanie Spinner's Quiver.
