« The Luck of Sid Luckman [by David Lehman] | Main | "Loss of Halo" [by Charles Baudelaire, trans. D. Lehman] »

November 22, 2019


Thank you, Peter, for this and your other thoughtful posts. I agree with you on "Mad Men," one of the best things I have ever seen on television. Like you I've seen every episode at least twice. I like the painting, too. And the story of the marketing guy who took your course at IC. -- DL

I haven't read Carnevale, but best of luck with it, and thanks for your posts the past couple weeks. If you don't have a marketing agency or a big press campaign behind a novel these days, it is a tough road to get it in front of readers. I like the painting very much. It almost seems like a collaboration between late de Kooning and early Boccioni. Excellent.

Grazie mille, Kent and David!
