Some 20 yrs past I heard a piece in segemnts that you had on NPR about your days at a foundry. It was accompanied by Prokofiev’s “Troika” from the LT Kije Suite. Is that available in any format? It included one word of wisdom that helped considerably during my boat building days. You stated that you would sit down to write and whether or not you wrote a word, nothing else would happen during that period: no mail checking, eating, etc. I recorded it on my 1/4-assed tape player but have lost track of the matl.

Love the book reviews you do on the radio.

Thanks for your consideraton and your writing.

It may be in Hoboken Fish and Chicago Whistle, if that is the title.
