this was after I unexpectedly bonded with a guy in a restaurant over what is probably known as a guys' vicarious living series (A Palm Beach mystery series: The Archy McNally stories)
P.S. of course, I like the stuff for very different reasons (I love the always funny and astute social commentary and... the food! Sanders had been a chef -- a very good one I suspect -- , but, of course, I'm fully aware of Archy's long and constantly growing list of sexual exploits...)
P.P.S. ok, G. , I'll forget all about it after I'm done with the other 10 odd volumes that I haven't yet read:) (the Sanders family had a "ghost writer" continue the series after he passed away) D.
