A Haunting ‘Conversation’ (an excerpt)by Vincent Canby, 1974 
Have you considered the possibility that everything that’s ever been said in this world might still be echoing somewhere, maybe rattling around within the interior of a stone, a tree trunk or at the bottom of the sea?
Though becoming increasingly faint, the sounds shall never disappear entirely and one day, perhaps, there will be equipment Sensitive enough to retrieve and record mankind’s oral history. In 24 abridged volumes it would make a perfect introductory offer to a book club.
Or even a book club all of its own.

 A Haunting ‘Conversation’ (an excerpt)
by Vincent Canby, 1974 

Have you considered the possibility that
everything that’s ever been said in this world
might still be echoing somewhere,
maybe rattling around within
the interior of a stone, a tree trunk
or at the bottom of the sea?

Though becoming increasingly faint,
the sounds shall never disappear
entirely and one day, perhaps,
there will be equipment Sensitive enough
to retrieve and record mankind’s oral history.
In 24 abridged volumes it would make
a perfect introductory offer to a book club.

Or even a book club all of its own.
