Of Gorce

"Sometimes the only thing in the world that doesn't bore me is listening to bores." Yes! All right! That's Sally Jay Gorce in THE DUD AVOCADO by Elaine Dundy. Makes me think of what Sun Ra said about peach pie. Also, Sally Jay's cousin blinks "like an owl," making THE DUD AVOCADO another book with an owl in it. I know you are disappointed because our last two books, DR. SAX and NORWOOD, had real owls in them, but sometimes you have to settle for an owl in a simile, kids. That's something you have to face as you go through life.
