午後から手が震えて、しばらく作業が厳しかった...

それは、山本KID徳郁選手の訃報を受けたからです
厳しい闘病生活を送っておられたことは、最近明らかにされましたが
その事実を知っても、KID選手が死ぬわけはないと
何故か無意識に思っていました

なので、今回の知らせを聞いた直後は、まさかお亡くなりになるとは

Kate Atkinson Interview with Kate Atkinson
The year is 1940, and Juliet Armstrong is on the trail of Nazi collaborators. Juliet isn't some high-living MI5 femme fatale; the protagonist of Transcription , a new novel by Kate Atkinson, is just an unworldly, if cynical, 18-year-old girl who writes up surveilled sessions between fascist sympathizers. But though she's a minor cog in the war effort among the secret agents and bureaucrats, she's soon pulled into bigger things—events that haunt her years later. ...more
