It finally happened and I can't believe it.
Our car got ransacked again last night (only two days after the last time), and our copy of The Best of Dorothy Parker is actually gone.
The break-ins are getting more annoying, and today when we all went out to our car the mess was way worse than usual with CDs and napkins and other random items everywhere, but no Dorothy Parker to be found. It was the only thing missing.
Maybe this is our version of a Little Free Library now? Will they return it when they are done? Bring us a different book? What new book should we replace it with? Maybe I should put in a copy of my own novel as a self-promotion? (Except that I like whatever's in the glove compartment to be something I can pull out and read if I'm stuck somewhere, and I already know how my book ends.)
So there's that. The end of an era. So long, Dorothy Parker. Your best was finally good enough.
