Or, as Randy Newman might say:



i don’t know my head from

A hole in my

Something (I forget the rest…something about Bob Dylan pretending not to recognize a shulmate years later in New York, as told to me by an activist at Annie Roth Blumfield’s Bat Mitzvah or her mother’s wedding to my cousin rather at what is the name of the Minneapolis museum the one with Cherry colgado pie


ok Now I remember the rest: when Peter Todd Bowman and I were 25, and three years clear of Yale, I lost track of him for a short while.  I had been living in New York City working as an assistant at for our Strauss to row and writing short stories that no one wanted to publish when he got back in touch.  He had acquired an agent and was going to Hollywood. He wanted me with him as co-rider on a stack of ideas he promised me he’d already developed and vetted with his representation in which needed to only my hand. Mine alone exclamation I Alexander Duplessis was the raider he needed! Not Robert town or Herman J miracle which exclamation.  I alone could rock and conjugate Todd bombs sensibility and besides, he had a place picked out for us in Burbank.  Parentheses near a Joseph a bank to boot   Parents.
