“So Titcomb’s Bookshop in Sandwich Mass. is having a special early launch for A Fistful of Collars?” Admin says.

“Today at three,” says Spence. “Looking forward to it.”

“Giving a talk?”

“I expect.”

“Going to mention satire?”

“Satire? Isn’t that what closes on Saturday night?”

“Hope not,” Admin says. “Because there’s a thread of it in A Fistful of Collars. In the whole series, in fact.”

“So you’ve read them?”

“Skimmed, anyway.”

A Fistful of Collars: On sale Tuesday, Sept. 11.

“Do we know about the Pawscars?” Admin says. “Sponsored by the American Humane Association, which among other things is concerned with the welfare of showbiz animals?”

“Now we do,” says Spence. “And the big winner? Yes – Uggie, from the The Artist. Did you like that dance at the end? And the way they depicted L.A. in the twenties? And the crazy anything-is-possible zeitgeist of the times?”

“Some of it.”
