A new blog about the Kindle Wireless Reading Device posts an appreciation for one of the great 1940s novelists whose works you can’t read on your Kindle.

And there’s a fascinating secret second story about his life. The same year he won a Pulitzer Prize — which he declined — he was writing these lyrics with the man who created “Alvin and the Chipmunks.”

“Come on-a my house, my house a come on
Come on-a my house, my house a come on
Come on-a my house, my house I’m gonna give a you
Peach and pear and I love your hair ah
Come on-a my house, my house a come on
Come on-a my house, my house a come on
Come on-a my house, my house, I’m gonna give you Easta-egg”
