Pierce Junction was an isolated New Hampshire town somewhat dignified by the presence of a small liberal-arts college; we survived by clustering together like a ball of snakes in a desert cave. The Sixties had taught us the high moral value of copulation, and we were slow to give up on an activity so simultaneously pleasurable and healthy.

She was determined to get away from me. She earned her keep waitressing at the Bakery Coffee Nook and after dropping out of Rizdee-she didn’t like being an artist after all, she said, it was too egocentric-she switched to waitressing at Nemo’s, since she had gotten old enough to serve liquor. Eventually, after doing some sleeping around I suppose, she married a local, a man some years older-an electrician, would you believe, after her father had owned an entire fixture factory in Norwich. One woman who came into the shop looked them over and told her, They’re charming, but not especially Southwest, are they?
