Just a reminder: Tomorrow the LBC welcomes Yannick Murphy, author of Here They Come, to the site (*cough* spoonbending anecdotes, please *cough*). On Thursday, return for her interview with Dan Wickett. And Friday, there’ll be a fab Segundo podcast for you to listen to in the cubby.
One last discussion note: From the start, I’ve been confidently noting that the novel’s narrator goes unnamed. Today a person connected to the book kindly reminded me that she does, in fact, get named once in the novel:
I’m the one who shops and I’ve got ten bucks for two days to feed the five of us. Polly at the A & P knows I’ve only ever got ten bucks and she says “How ya doing, Smitty?” Then she passes through a bunch of my items without ringing them up and gives me a wink. I even come home with change. Tom does it too, but his nose is huge and red and usually has a ripe white pimple on it, so I don’t like to stand on his line, but like I said, he’ll do it too and not charge me for some items and wink when he’s packing the bags and call me Smitty.
