You have indeed outdone yourself. Who will you cast as Paul for the movie? Mavis must be lying on her back, kicking her heels in delight!!!

Thanks for reading Lin, I know it's a long haul. I don't think I'd read something so prolix if it turned up in my inbox! Mavis Gallant, I'm quite sure -- not that I ever know her -- would be a long way from pleased, she often railed against biographers shifting the focus from the writing. On the other hand -- Nicholas is Mavis adjacent, his story isn't hers. Would I write about him if not for that connection? Probably not. Take care, my dear, and thanks.

Such a good tale. Can't wait for the conclusion. And those cartoons are a hoot. I remember reading the Alexandrian Quartets in my teens; those books were so big then.

Thanks Allan. I'm looking forward to the conclusion, too, believe you me. I've never read the Alexandrian Quartets, but remember they were very much a thing. Back in the day. As the kids probably no longer say. xo, B
