Robert – enjoy your visit with family. My new year goal will be to find one of these typewriters. So beautiful. Happy New Year to your famiky.
Catalina: No, I was clarifying that Norma is Beatrice, not the other way round. Of course, she might be lying. Beatrice could be an alias. She may, as you suggest, have multiple personalities. I myself write under more than one name and ‘Leo Madigow’ is only an anagram of what it says on my passport. (Interestingly, although ‘MaGiDow is a real name, there is no other ‘Madigow’ on planet earth; I guess one is enough.) What’s in a name (besides millions of cultural assumptions)?
BTW, I finished “Cultural Evidence” and wrote a 5-minute poem inquiring after the next book. Is there a work-in-progress? I think you intimated as much in some of your posts.
Kent – kudos on amazing holiday poem! Loved it
Kent – Agreed, great poem!
