Am giddy about this one…"
Thanks very much, I'm giddy and all, not least on getting a mention in the company of Foster Wallace, Mistry and others.
(The image herewith is Egon Schiele's Semi-Nude Girl, Reclining, a print of which hangs on the wall of Dr. Forrest's octagonal bedchamber... It's that sort of novel...)
