My agent firmly believes that being on social media doesn’t help us that much, beyond showing our publisher that we’re committed and enthusiastic. Our sales are a reflection of whether they have a marketing plan and are willing to devote money and people to follow through on it.

Hah! I do believe Newman was 5’9” but leading men are incredibly sensitive about their height, and I won’t even touch Tom Cruise. I had lunch with Michael Douglas once and we stood pretty much eye to eye. And he was taller than his father.

I met him once at a restaurant in the city when he stopped by to stammer hi to a mutual friend and when I stood up to shake his hand was shocked and delighted to discover I was two inches taller than he was. I’m not tall.

I knew my dear, chaste old mom was starting to slip when she turned to me one day and out of nowhere said “I never liked to have sex standing up. It was too much work”

Same thing as returning to your blues roots.

You can toss in Mel Gibson for good measure, from my POV. Also Susan Sarandon.

This is the second time Otto has put some of his private collection up for auction. He’s been collecting since his youth and has one of the finest in the world. There are often a few doozies under glass in the shop. Care for a signed first edition of The Big Sleep?

No one has ever been more beautiful than Madeline Carroll when she raised her eyes to meet Ronald Coleman’s on the throne in The Prisoner of Zenda. She was a golden goddess.

For some reason I always ran into him in the dairy aisle! I really miss him. He was such a sweet guy and SO filled with interesting stories.

Thanks much, Joe! And I can’t wait to hear the podcast. It was a lot of fun!

Me, too. Melanie was a spoiled, rich kid brat. There’s also the issue of the huge gulf in acting talent between the two actresses to consider.

You're the sweetest of the sweet, Luanne. Hoagy's newest, THE MAN WHO WASN'T ALL THERE, due out in the spring, takes place almost entirely in Lyme, with a side trip to the Old Lyme A&P. I tried for an encounter with Dominick Dunne in the dairy aisle, but it didn't work!
