    Looking for a forum on James T. Farrell.

    The reason that I'm looking for a forum on James T. Farrell is because in the middle of my eighties I picked up a book from my late fathers shelves called, "Fellow Countrymen" and it awakened memories over 70 years old of originally finding Farrell a difficult writer to follow and now I'm having another go.
    However, I'm faced with an imediate problem in that some cretin ripped the last two pages out of my late fathers copy of "Fellow Countrymen" so I'm unable to read the end of, A Sunday in April" and I wonder if it is possible to obtain legal copies of those two pages.

    Surely there must be a forum dedicated to James T. Farrell somewhere!

    I am not sure if there is a forum devoted exclusively to this author.

    There are two things you can do: look for a pdf of your book and/ or consult a home library.

    I suppose, you have some kind of public library (sorry, that was what I really meant) where you live in the city/town or at an university, where you can read and lend books.

    I live near Oxford which has a good public library but does not carry the book. I checked with the Bodleian who do but are closed due the virus so I'll wait.

    Many thanks for the message. I checked and they didn't have the book.
