My Dear Friend and Yours

Thank you. It’s a great pleasure to be here tonight, to celebrate Narrative Magazine, and Carol and Tom, and the great master, Tobias Wolff. Although it’s also a little daunting. Toby has been, for Paula and me, a powerful force in our lives since we first met him—thirty-five years ago or so. So it’s a bit like: “Well, just talk for ten minutes about the role of oxygen in your life. Or Led Zeppelin.”

But I’ll give it a try.
