An Encounter with Andrew Harvey
On the chair in the corner is a large open case containing silk neckties and cuff links and watches, and I look them over. There's also a box full of wrapped presents, with little labels on them. One says "Leila." There isn't one for me. But I'm not entirely disappointed.
