Boundless joy. That is the emotion I experienced when I learned of my ghostwriter’s latest publication in a beautiful journal out of Roger Williams University called Mount Hope. His essay, “Kurt Vonnegut and the Proverbial Window of American Politics,” is certainly real. For a moment I thought this was another of his “April Fool’s Day” shenanigans, but when I discovered that this puzzling holiday falls only upon the first day of the month, my doubts were banished. It is no prank.
To verify, I opened Issue 7 and, sure enough, found his essay on page 82. The vicarious glee tightened my throat, quickened my pulse, and then wormed its way into my stomach. Though the nausea of happiness is already passing, I can only hope it will be followed by even more jarringly good news on the publishing front at some later date. I will be sure to acquire digestive supplements and Pepto-Bismol to prepare for that cheery day.
