My first copy of "Innocent Spouse" arrived today, fresh off the presses from somewhere up in New England. What does one say? All I could do was stare at it, thumb the pages and take its picture to share with all of you. Yes, an amazing moment. It takes so long to get to this point that it's tough to feel the way I thought I'd feel (carthwheels and all that), but I feel something special just the same. With it was a beautiful letter from my editor, Suzanne O'Neill, which will be framed.
LATER: Took the book out to dinner with my son. We sat in a booth at The Tombs, with the book on the table. I bought it a drink, gave it a toast. Then walked it around the 'hood, introduced it to some friends. Now I'm taking it to bed. zzzzzzzzzz
