This week, as Hillary Clinton visited Toronto on a measly 15-city book tour, APOL made its gazillionth tour appearance, this time in the Finger Lakes region of New York, where it hiked to Taughannock Falls, the tallest single-drop waterfall east of the Rocky Mountains. The book and its thirsty entourage later repaired to a local vineyard. And then another. Hmm. Literary types.
After a stop at Cornell University to confer with visiting professor John Cleese on the present state of absurdist comedy, APOL did some glad-handing at the nearby Ithaca Farmers Market. The market has been operating continuously since 1973. APOL, for its part, has been operating nonstop since 2015.
Note: “APOL” is the anthropomorphic version of my satirical novel A Person of Letters, which has gone on tour without me (with a wink and a nod to magical realism). Follow APOL’s quixotic world tour here or on my Facebook Author Page, and read about all of APOL’s (mis)adventures in sequence on this tour archive.
