Answer:  LONG STORY

(And, he wouldn’t be just whistling Dixie either!  That is quite a tome.  Maybe not the world’s longest book, but it is definitely right up there.  I wonder if they strung together all of my comments, from these spoilers over the past six years, if I’d come close to “War and Peace”.  Probably not.

No new clue words today, but each jumble appears to be new.  They flowed pretty smoothly for me though.  I liked today’s answer letter layout.  Nothing obvious about it.  The cartoon and question kind of makes the answer pretty obvious though.  Still, a satisfying Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    When you’re a student of literature they give you a bright red ribbon if you finish War & Peace. It’s gratifying, but Spenser’s Faerie Queen or Milton’s Paradise Lost gets you a lapel pin.

    Hey, Chuck! Is this a continuing tradition, or are you talking about . . . back in the day? There have been no pins or ribbons in my reading history. And, none are on the horizon. The biggest book I nearly finished was Shogun. I got probably 4/5, or so, of the way through, but then they started airing the mini-series, and that was the end of that. For a while there I had gotten pretty good at Japanese! — YUR

    DEAR ANJIN SAN, THE BOOK IS ALWAYS BETTER THAN THE MOVIE – ESPECIALLY SO IN THE CASE OF SHOGUN.
