Listed below are links to weblogs that reference A Little Bit of Bix (by Laura Orem):


bix graduated from lake forest academy outside chicago. i used to play against them in football but it was little after bix, who i guess was still in the "leather helmet era."
i think orson welles might also have gone there for a while, not sure though. certainly it would have been convenient to orson's boyhood home in kenosha, wisconsin. jean harlow was also in the mix there too although LFA did not admit girls at that time. but there was an affiliated girls' school called "Ferry Hall." Quite a talented group of young meshuginahs!

I believe you are saving us from forgetting, Laura. A noble pasttime. And you look just like your mother but for the blonde hair.

Dear L: It's a sad story, but thanks for reminding us of his great musical ability.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
