I finished my novelette. Since you are my only fan and once published a book, I am relying on you to get me an agent. (I.e., you must have one; so you tell her she should read my MS, and there we are!) What do you think? Lisa Suckdog referred me to an agent once ca. 1997, but all I did in response was send him a packet of Animal Reviews with post-its stuck to the parts I liked best, and he never wrote back. Maybe you can broker me a second chance. I can’t imagine getting one on my own. I am simply not built that way. Someone needs to throw me a rope. Can you please do so? Avner thinks my novelette is mind-blowing and heartbreaking for its genre (“Jane Austen”), and Franzen said the first part was “remarkably accomplished,” so it can’t totally suck. But he apparently doesn’t know an agent piss-ant enough to care, or something. I went to the bookstore to see what books there are, and I saw a new novel by Siri Hustvedt in exactly the format I want: super-cheap paper with a colorful folding cover. Plus hers was also too short, and in the same artful agglomerative style of one-paragraph scenes, so obviously there’s a huge market for me. I would publish it myself, but I want more than 50 people to read it.
