It’s all about you. I’ve been eating your food, and drinking your drinks, for almost six years now. You are the best approximation of what I ate as a child I can find on the west coast, and that’s not for a lack of trying. The leather seats in your…

It’s not me. It’s you. Trust me on this one. You’re two blocks away from my house, and over the last few years I’ve found reason after reason not to patronize you. I in fact take inordinate pains to visit other restaurants of your kind far from where I…

I’m holding in my hand the very first copy of Seasons of Truth. First one. MINE. Haven’t figured out what to sign for myself on the inside, but I’m sure I’ll think of something. After all, I am my biggest fan. So far. It arrived in my mailbox on Saturday,…

On Tuesday night I approved last proof of Seasons of Truth. I’ve made all the changes there are to make. I resisted even more tiny text tweaks, and committed myself to a book which can stand up well on its own. There was an unintended consequence to this…
