We Are All Just Prisoners Here, of Our Own Device...

Under the guise of a book launch for John Lekich's new novel, Prisoner of Snowflake Falls, we managed the successful capture of a few prisoners of our own. For 'chow time', Chef Lawren Moneta turned out Tomato Tarte Tatins, Zuni Cafe Gougeres, Lucques Broad Bean Puree on toast, Mourad's Grilled Kefta with Cilantro Dressing and Grapes - all refreshingly washed down with chilly martinis and white wine. Following a rousing reading by our author, prisoners lined up to chat with John to have their books personalized. Early parole was granted to those prisoners who purchased books, while the remaining were released later on good behaviour with a promise to return.

Some of us are still awaiting release.
