one of the best parts of my surprise 40th birthday party in June.
My pal, Frank, gave me The Uncommon Reader: A Novella by Alan Bennett. In it the queen decides to take advantage of the book mobile that visits the palace. The queen's reading proves problematic for many--but she can't quit the book mobile. Instead, SPOILER she quits the throne.
This little book was a delight. And so is Frank. I like to imagine him and all my friends thinking about me and deciding which book I would like best. It really was terribly fun to force them all to do that.
Forgive my blatant name dropping, but yes--Frank Christianson, my pal, is THE Frank Christianson, renown Buffalo Bill scholar. I just call him Frank. Thanks for the book, Frank.
