Have you heard of this man?
If not, I can pretty much guarantee that you're going to at some point in the next several months.
He has a book coming out in just a week or so. And though my own taste in literature runs heavily to things written a minimum of 50 years before I was born, his is too intriguing to pass up.
There's more here, including an interesting excerpt from the first chapter.
Laughter Amid Tears
I've been sidelined for a couple days due to a shoulder problem. Nothing horrible, just an inflammation in the muscle that stems from an unfortunate collision with a hulking Lufthansa stewardess a couple years ago. (Thanks for the souvenir, Birgit. I hope you limp occasionally. It would only be fair.)
The worst part of recuperation from a flare-up is that I'm not supposed to lift weights or knit for the duration. Feh.
And now I come back to find that in my absence the place has been like the showroom in a Borscht Belt Hotel. Everybody's a comic. And some of you should be ashamed of yourselves. (Giggle.)
I enjoyed reading all the captions. I may have to do that again.
