No Touch Monkey Storming the Beach and a memoir workshop
- Ahoy there Cape Codders.
Why bake like a lizard when you can spend a sunny summer afternoon
indoors at the library with the creator of The East Village Inky?Learn
how to write your torrid memoirs in 2 and a half hours (bring a
thimble, because my great wisdom ought to fit in it for convenient
carry out!) It's absolutely free at any rate!
Bring a notebook and bury the kids up to their necks in sand.
Then, Grasshopper, you will have a chance to see if the learned teacher
knows what the hell she's talking about when I read aloud from No Touch
Monkey! And Other Travel Lessons Learned Too Late the following week.
If you could alert your friends in the Boston area to these events, I'd
be much obliged:Wednesday July 14, 2-4:30pm Free Memoir Writing

her promise to refrain from singing some of its saltier lyrics at
school, in friends' homes, on the stoop...

Lessons Learned Too Late, perhaps he might like to play with dollies
this Father's Day. Who wouldn't want to get his hands on George W and
his infernal cabinet? There's no shame in a grown man playing with
paper dolls - the book is by a friend of a friend who says he needs
help in his fledgling guerilla marketing effort. Patrick, when I meet
you, don't say I never did nothing for you. (because that would be bad

Finally, some guerilla market research for my next book. If you were
going to buy a book about someone's crappy day jobs, would you reach
