About me

Gender Male
Industry Publishing
Location New York, New York, United States
Introduction Herewith is my daily life, written (to the best of my ability) in the style of Lois, a 1950s housewife who routinely and without fail chronicled the most mundane events of her life, and yet provided fascinating reading for those willing to dig beneath the surface of her text. I can only hope to do her justice with this "flattery of imitation".
