This is the most charming tale I have read in a while. A master author writes it beautifully. The story moves flawlessly from beginning to end.
Two old sisters, both uneducated and lazy, live together in a place far away from others. The sisters like it that way; no one meddles in their affairs. One day when they are coming back from the market, where they sell all their vegetables, which they steal from others, they have the scare o

I remember the very first book I wrote...I was like, eight or nine...proudly entitled "Porky and Beefy". I remember how crafting it so gloriously consumed me...leaving my entire social life in its wake. Including my crush, Terry, who was flabbergasted when I graciously declined his bike-riding request.
("Well, you're just a dumb...writer!")


That was...oh my!...many years ago! Yet, I still go t
