Choate_About_MickeyChoate


My agent and friend of twenty years, Michael “Mickey” Choate, passed away this weekend of lung cancer. He leaves behind a family that loved him dearly and friends that can hardly imagine a world without his grace, dignity, kindness, and sublime calm.

“The best way to get even with anyone is to put them in the rearview mirror on your way to something better.”
Joe Hill, Horns

“You think you know someone. But mostly you just know what you want to know.”
Joe Hill, Horns

“She breathed deeply of the scent of decaying fiction, disintegrating history, and forgotten verse, and she observed for the first time that a room full of books smelled like dessert: a sweet snack made of figs, vanilla, glue, and cleverness.”
Joe Hill, NOS4A2
