New York is full of stories, and this one about Melissa Harding is true, except for the names. I made those up. You will find other stories on my web site: www.rhodabook.com. This story and others will be included in the new book. The working title is "Filed Under Miscellaneous" and will include stories left out of the first book: RHODA: HER FIRSTNINETY YEARS. Of course I won't be able to resist adding new material, like plays, poetry and polemical articles!
Thanks for writing, Lesley. Of course I remember you.
