A Wonderful Thing

Robert Hellenga, The Fall of a Sparrow (New York: Simon & Schuster, 1998; rpt. 1999), p. 91:
It was a truly wonderful thing, he reminded himself, that a man could earn a living talking to young people about Homer and Ovid and Horace.
Nice work if you can get it. I couldn't get it when I tried.

From the same book, a misprint in the Sappho quotation on p. 98:
λέπτον / δ' αὔτικα χπῶι πῦρ ὐπαδεδρόμηκεν.
For χπῶι read χρῶι.
