A friend recently called to let me know that I had misspelled “Beatles” in my novel. This particular friend was practically exultant over catching the error. Years ago, while helping him move, I’d found a cardboard box he’d labeled “Winter cloths” and had some fun at his expense. He thought that catching my spelling,“Beetles,” for the bugs not the band, was almost payback.
