Elaine Stritch's assessment of her famous botched performance of "The Ladies Who Lunch" is heartbreaking, lovely: http://t.co/kcshAINZlSRIP Elaine Stritch. She was still very much herself when I spoke with her in February: http://t.co/7eBmjMo4uV@RiversAreDamp I'm very proud of my NZ accent, so I hope I was using it when Kiwi-splaining. (The key? Saying "fosh and cheps" to get going)So much great stuff in the June 23 New Yorker that I just got to @stillsarita's AMAZING private probation/halfway house piece. SO GOOD!
