“How did the talk go?” Spence says. “Anyone throw anything?”
“Not on target,” says Admin.
“Did you ever find the red-checked shirt?”
(And he never will, at least if we mean by that a red-checked shirt in one piece.)
“So what did you wear?”
“The one with the blue stripes.”
“Those wide blue stripes?”
“They’re not wide.”
“What did you talk about?”
“This and that.”
“The one-review thing?”
“Oh my God! I told them I was going to circle back to it but I never did.”
“Circle back? Were you roaming around the room like Maury Povich?”
“That’s not funny.”
“I hear those other two writers, Lynn Kiele Bonasia and Brunonia Barry, are pretty charming.”
“I’m just saying,” says Spence. “Did you read anything?”
“The tennis lesson scene in Thereby Hangs A Tail.”
“How did that go over?”
“They seemed to like Chet.”
A breeze springs up behind me. That would be my tail.
For people at the talk who were interested in the cover of To Fetch A Thief:
Admin wonders if B. Stover has read a book called Montaillou by Emmanuel Le Roy Ladurie. He says she might like it.
