Publication: Sex and How to Get It

Drop by Polite Company magazine to see my humor piece, "Sex and How to Get It." Worth a chuckle or two, I hope. Feel free to leave a comment or repost it to Twitter or Facebook. That's how word of mouth spreads these days.

Which reminds me: Kit Marlowe's The Big Splash can now be purchased through Amazon as well as with the publisher, so now it's listed on GoodReads and LibraryThing as well. Reviews or recommendations would be really helpful! If you've read it, consider offering your opinion in any of the above.

Off this afternoon to catch the last performance of Stoppard's The Real Inspector Hound at Shakespeare & Co. You know much I love Stoppard. I've seen other productions of this play, so it will be fun to see S&Co's take on it. Witty and lively and full of clever twists and turns, it's a play as much about the theatre experience as it is a tightly plotted murder mystery.

Wait...those Aren't the ways to gain bed partners? (Only the truth is funny, and all that...)

I see Shakespeare & Co., I think bookstore...how was it?

I think it's in a W.S. Maugham novel that he talks about a woman who gained a reputation as a great wit simply by always speaking the truth. There's something in that.

The play was fun, though in some ways oddly rendered. I anticipate writing a review soonish, so I'll save the rest, but Stoppard provides delights always.
