Capote, Truman

The Bargain

Reading the story while entertaining the dog with one hand, fumbling with papers of the evening’s podCAST while trying to prevent the disruptive thud of bone-to-floor, then sacrificing my own right hand to the dog’s playful tugowar teeth: this, podCASTee, this is sacrifice.

My great sacrifice, your bargain.

Thanks for the sacrifice! I was looking forward to the new Capote anthology which contains this previously unpublished story, so I was happy to hear it at last, despite the electronic warbles and canine criticism.

We’ll miss you while you’re away, Miette!
