Just yesterday, Christine Taylor sent this to a mutual friend (Kaye Barley) who then forwarded to me :
"I was thinking about your posting that a review is the best compliment. I haven't got a review in my head but wondered if you could forward this to Vicki Lane as my compliment.
I started Vicki Lane's The Day of Small Things and was so astonished by the first chapter that I wrote a poem:
AFTER READING A PARAGRAPH I COULDN'T HAVE WRITTEN
It makes me sad
how close I am to gifted
but not enough.
I hear the stories. Yes! Yes!
I know about that!
I've seen the pictures, places,
The lines aren't in me.
The fever is there to tell you
so you'd know, so you'd do something.
This is all that comes:
Stop the wars. Stop the wars.
Stop the wars."
