Thanks For Pouring Your Heart Out

  My friend Megan told me some years ago that when she finished reading The Dud Avocado she wrote a letter to novelist Elaine Dundy to thank her for her work. “I don’t know. It just really impacted me and I thought she should know,” she offered in way of explanation. This struck me as […]
