Everett Sloane

A rare photo of Chris Offutt in captivity! You could never guess it from our sour expressions, but we had just finished a jaunty duet of "Kansas City Star" by Roger Miller when Megan Abbott snapped this photo. How fleeting is human happiness! I tried to kid myself that we look tough here, but Dr. Theresa insists that we're "about to burst into tears." Walking Megan home, Dr. Theresa and I pointed out a local landmark, exclaiming, "Here is the very gatepost behind which Everett Sloane skulked in the shadows to avoid the gaze of the prying townspeople in HOME FROM THE HILL!" or words to that effect.
