the case of the mysteriously missing book
That is the cover for The Crown.
One of my students [Nancy Bilyeau] wrote The Crown and is steadily taking over the world, even Oprah is suggesting you grab and read that book. Whoa. Pretty soon my students will be bossing me around.
I am supposed to have a copy of that book. It is signed just for me and Nancy packaged it up and mailed it back in late December/early January. The book did not show and did not show and I thought, Oh well lots of late Christmas gifts in the mail are slowing things down still. And I waited. But it still did not show.
Then Nancy got the book back in the mail. The address label where my name and address were supposed to be had been ripped off the package so it was sent back to her.
She repackaged it up and put it in the mail to me —
And it hasn’t shown and hasn’t shown and hasn’t shown.
I am beginning to wonder if maybe an ex pissed off boyfriend is working at the Post Office in Queens ripping my name off packages.
*Postscript: FB Mail From Nancy Today: “You know what? I mailed it again today — a third time. PRIORITY MAIL. Supposed to be there by Friday at the latest. You WILL get this fucker!”
