The “About Last Night” e-mailbox has been discovered by art-world publicists, who are flooding it with press releases. I suppose that’s an improvement on the Viagra-type spam I used to get by the carload, but it’s still irritating.
I’m doing my very best to keep up with all the bonafide reader mail (I just answered a ton of it). If you should fail to hear back from me more or less promptly, though, that’s the reason why. Apologies.
