I was born and raised in New York City. I went to a school quite like Eldridge Alternative, except they called it the Calhoun Learning Center. The school had no walls, but remained standing nonetheless. Later, I attended Vassar College, which did have walls.
I’ve never lived anywhere else, but I’ve visited Lenin’s Tomb in Moscow and other famous places with dead people in them. (When visiting Grant’s Tomb, I asked them to open it, but they refused.) I’ve had a lot of jobs, and most of them involved books. I’ve reviewed books, shelved books, and sold books. Writing books is definitely the best job I’ve had so far. Not only can you get up late in the morning, you have your dog to keep you company and sort out the odd grammar problem. (Most businesses do not permit basset hounds on the premises which is probably wise.)
