Yesterday morning, I posted an excerpt from Revenge of the Lawn, by Richard Brautigan. I did not have this book. Last night, I arrived at the bar where I was meeting my friend, who I had not seen in months, and what was waiting for me, what did she have for me but this book, with this inscription. She received it 40 years ago, the year in which I was born. Thank you, beautiful Janet, for this lovely gift.
