Interesting discovery over the weekend. I was watching a S5 episode of Bonanza, "My Son My Son", which was written by Denne Peticlerc, the man played by Giovanni Ribisi in Papa Hemingway in Cuba and was the writer of 1977's Islands in the Stream. I'll have to investigate Mr. Peticlerc's other film and TV credits.
Ditto for Allie's baseball glove in Catcher...Rye, another semi-decade reread.
I didn't read Catcher...Rye until I was thirty(!) The whole time I was reading that slim, brick-colored novel I thought, "Where was this book when I was sixteen?!?" Though I most likely avoided it since it was often associated with the pos who murdered John Lennon, which had occurred only a few years before (at the time).
Hope you're (re)enjoying Gatsby, old sport. It's so ridiculously autobiographical (for Scott, not yours truly).
As for Our Man Papa, I am headed to Cayo Hueso tomorrow.
