a little change-up, a small tip of the hat to that forgotten principle of variety… today’s installment, comes from the shuttered confines of Prospero’s Books. Yes, yes, every now and again, an erstwhile customer rattles the Locked door seeking egress – more importantly seeking a new book, desperate for something to read.
People have texted me their wants, and I, hands gloved, books disinfected and wrapped in bags, have met them at the door. Unlocking and opening it only wide enough to receive their pesos and, in return slip them a bag of contraband.
Today’s cover image is yet another of my bootlegged captures from the Ralph Steadman exhibit this last summer at the KCMo public library.
ps – thank you Bruce for that tasty brew! …
