  1. Em, Another fun list. I wonder how, when you collect such lists. N wonders whether you ever sleep. There is an article in your NYRB of 9 Oct 2014, p. 29 about “Texas Believers”, which you might think to read, but I believe you would find it surprisingly germane to some of your writing concerns. Sadly, I haven’t been captured by any pictures for you lately. (They mainly seem to appear in either the TLS or the LRB). How is Pasha faring? Love, Dad
