This gem of a thank you comes on the sixth page of Erik Larson's Sources and Acknowledgments in Garden of the Wild Beasts which I finally finished this morning.
I don't know about others, but I sure could use someone like Penny to get me to do the things I don't want to do.
It's a burden people shouldn't have to bear alone. My wife does this sometimes, but someone other than a spouse, who doesn't have so many other responsibilities, would be helpful.
May everyone have such a friend.
(Just out of curiosity, I googled Penny Simon. She's Larson's publicist at Random House.)
