I have a distinct recollection of having read in one of your more non-fiction books an anecdote wherein someone early on in your career tells you that you have all the basics down to be an artist; now all you need to do is find out whether you have anything to say.

I’ve searched through my copy of “Chicago Days/Hoboken Nights” without finding this story. My sister looked through her copy of “Fishwhistle” and couldn’t find it. Does it ring any bells with you, or have I gotten even more confused than usual?

Not a jingle. I am still worried about the basics.
