Spotted in the courthouse

Hey, are you a YA editor at a publisher rhyming with "Carper Hollins"? Did you send the person you live with to jury duty recently? He and I barely made it out of our required service yesterday. He did not laugh at my terrible joke but I won't hold that against him, for it was terrible. And this is the book he was reading.

(As part of questioning we were asked to list the occupations of the people we lived with, but his was not so thrilling when you have a TSA agent and an old-school gravedigger in the room. Again, no offense meant.)

I myself was reading snippets of Jess Walter's BEAUTIFUL RUINS when our breaks were too short to do work but too long to stare at the wall.
