I read the The Female Complaint. What a hoot! I am now compelled to “live a better cliche”, and have learned that “falling in love isn’t a very good way of getting to know someone”. I am amused and enthralled by your sharp readings of Showboat (people can never goof enough on Edna Ferber, in my opinion), your indulgence of Imitation of Life, your ability to mock Dorothy Parker, and your ability to use archival material without making a tribute to its object. I am also compelled to watch She-Devil.
