At the Century Club

In the elevator, Century Club, 7 West 43rd Street.

They warned us against cellphones so I only took this one furtive picture when we were alone in the elevator. We'd gone there to watch the tireless & generous young writer George Salis receive the first Tom LaFarge Award, enough money that he'll be able to go to Greece for three months to research his next book. He's the one who tracked me down so he could interview Johnny about Mangled Hands, which led to its being republished a year or two ago.


It was fun to get dolled up & leave the neighborhood. We like taking a bus together. We hold hands & lean in close.
