Initiation, by Robert Hugh Benson (1871 - 1914)
A tale of all types of human pain, (physical, spiritual, and psychological,), this book teaches you about what it means to be truly human. An interesting and witty story although the plot is somewhat grim. (Summary by Mozartjr)

This is set up. I've left the genre/keyword portion in the first post as a reminder that we'd like some keywords before cataloging, if possible.

Interesting, but inconsequential: this was published the same year that the author died. :hmm:

Thanks Tricia! I wasn't quite sure what to put the genre as... It didn't seem like historical fiction to me, but then it didn't seem like literary fiction either... I don't know, I suppose I'll figure it out :)
That is interesting... didn't know that.

May I claim Section 2?

If so, could I get some clarification about the instructions for the intro? They say to begin with, "Section (or Chapter) # of Initiation". Does that mean that some sections will say "Chapter #" and others will say "Section #"? Is there some convention for deciding which to use?

Hello! Section 02 is yours...
about the intro, you could say Chapter 1, Part 2, like it says in the MW. I updated the first post to say that. Thanks for bringing that to my attention!
