what does one do with 1000 books?

Hopefully, one sells them. But in the meantime, one will put them in a rented 5’ x 10’ storage unit.

The final, final, final sign-off on “Kutuuka” took place yesterday after I received and okayed the trimmed and assembled signatures. One hundred pounds of ink, a shameful amount of paper (the printing company does thankfully recycle all the printed proofs that didn’t quite meet my standards) and a lot of blood, sweat and tears later, the book is now on its way to Boston for binding.

In a couple of weeks a truck will pull up to the rental unit, and the books will have a home. Hopefully, they won’t live there for too long.
