Summary
She pouts. I was expecting more of a story, she says. It is difficult to get into the swing when the subject keeps changing. An ageing writer fills his journal: he has opinions about everything. He is challenged by Anya, the smart, irreverent young woman he hires to type his notes
Summary
Fulfilling a publisher assignment to share his opinion on the state of the world, aging writing Senor C pens a scathing indictment of western leaders, education, and other topics, an endeavor that is marked by his budding relationship with a new assistant
