I am laughing. I really am. I don’t know about Geology, Saul, but Telekinesis maaaaaybe? Y’know. Like, oh, the necklace, the music, the books…Yes. Laughing LOTS. In a good way.

Quote of the Day

I gave Amy’s bedroom just a glance; for her I had a better source of hints, herself. She said she hadn’t changed anything in her mother’s bedroom. It might have told a woman, especially a Lily Rowan, a lot, but all I got was that she had liked pale green for drapes and the bed cover, she used three different scents, all expensive, and she didn’t mind if the rug had a big spot near the bathroom door. The living room did have a few hints which might help or might not. …The books, seven whole shelves of them, were such a mixture, all kinds, fiction and non-fiction, that after I had looked at twenty or thirty titles I quit.

Quote of the Day

I don’t know what Lon Cohen is on the Gazette and I doubt if he does. City or wire, daily or Sunday, foreign or national or local, he seems to know his way in and around without ever having to work at it. His is the only desk in a room about nine by twelve, and that’s just as well because otherwise there would be no place for his feet, which are also about nine by twelve. From the ankles up he is fairly regular.

Quote of the Day

'… That was difficult, for pawn—that is, as the boy advanced into manhood he became increasingly peculiar. I learned that in the lower schools he had given evidence of talent, and certainly in college—that is to say, of my own knowledge, after the injury, he possessed brilliance. Later the brilliance perhaps remained, but became distorted. At a certain point—'

Wolfe interrupted me. “A moment. Go back a few sentences. Beginning that was difficult, for pawn—did you saw pawn?”

I found it. “That’s it. Pawn. I don’t get it.”

“Neither did the stenographer. Proceed.”
