I suppose you want congratulations. You should know my universe was very nearly organized when I discovered RARA-AVIS. Now my bedside table moans with the weight of unread books. Larger piles lean against my favourite chair. I should be strolling Florida sands and watching Golden Girls re-runs. Instead, I'm in hotel conference rooms with people who feign friendly interest and slyly recommend yet more titles. They're all about the random violence of life. When the reaper comes, I'll insist she wait until I've finished the chapter.
