Chalkdust Hourhand wrote autobiographies for business people who got lucky in life and wanted to tell the world how smart they were. Later she’d watch them give interviews on tv and misquote the books. I never wrote that, she would shout to the screen. Didn’t you even read it? Then she wrote letters under a fake name, telling the business people how much she loved their books, but that they should be more careful when doing publicity. It’s like there are two people in you who never met: the brilliant captain of industry and the equally brilliant author of books.
