by the great Clive Hicks-Jenkins of Wales!
Poet/novelist, aware of that people want new electronic games and semi-alien gadgets for Christmas instead of a blank verse narrative poem, even if it is post-apocalyptic: I need to get together with Beth in the next few weeks and brainstorm. It's not easy for an epic poem these days.
Husband too smart to become a writer, expressing his sympathy as he sees fit: Took Homer years to get the recognition he deserved.

Mr. Bookseller: "I don't think this Homer guy has the numbers we're looking for. Let's just order one of his next book."
Ms. Bookseller: "If that."
