Does Jonathan have other friends that speak to his ideals, or is he the only one?
I know a few. There’s Donald Shimoda, the ex-Messiah of Illusions. There’s the ferrets of Curious Lives, even more directly connected to the events of our lives.
Uh-oh. I think all my books have a quiet connection, as though my life was built to support Jonathan Seagull. Not a burden, that connection, but a joy.
