Introducing Irony by Maxwell Bodenheim (1892 - 1954).

Volunteers outside the USA: Maxwell Bodenheim died in 1954. His work is still protected by copyright in places, like Europe, where copyright is author's death plus 70 years.
Maxwell Bodenheim was once known as the King of Greenwich Village Bohemians after moving to New York from Chicago where he was one of the founders of the The Chicago Literary Times. But his life took a downward spiral and he became a panhandler and led a desultory life, finally ending in his murder, along with his third wife, in a Bronx apartment.

The title of this book characterizes the tone of these 22 poems and 10 small stories, full of dark cynicism and twisted irony, with titles such as Seaweed from Mars and Insanity.
( Larry Wilson)
• This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/introducing-irony-by-maxwell-bodenheim-2/


    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/60427

Thanks so much, Amy!

I do have a question for you.
I've put in the short disclaimer, but we have the little stories at the end that aren't poems. Do you think we should do the standard disclaimer for these?

MW is filled in and we are ready for a DPL and Readers!

For consistency I think the short disclaimer should be used.
