The Bargain

by Capote, Truman

Reading the story while entertaining the dog with one hand, fumbling with papers of the evening’s podCAST while trying to prevent the disruptive thud of bone-to-floor, then sacrificing my own right hand to the dog’s playful tugowar teeth: this, podCASTee, this is sacrifice.

My great sacrifice, your bargain.

    Thanks for the sacrifice! I was looking forward to the new Capote anthology which contains this previously unpublished story, so I was happy to hear it at last, despite the electronic warbles and canine criticism.

    We’ll miss you while you’re away, Miette!
