Excerpt

leave her lodgings at the seaside--she was so disturbed by the screams of the lobsters being boiled in the back-kitchen.... I was reading only the other day that oysters' hearts continue to beat down to the very moment they are being assimilated.... What they must suffer, poor dears! Couldn't there be a law that they should only be eaten under chloroform, or something?... I never get tired of turbot--cod, now, I don't care for, and salmon I like--but I can't digest--why, is more than I can tell you.--(&c.)

[Illustration: "Don't make a fuss--you can take one glass, as he wishes it."]

Miss Seaton. (to herself.) To see DOUGLAS here a--a paid parasite--and actually seeming to enjoy his food--it's like some dreadful nightmare--I can't believe it! But I'm glad he hasn't the face to speak to me!

Lord Strath. (to SEAKALE offering Hock.) If you please.

Author of the Day

CHADWICK WALL
Chadwick Wall has written for the New Orleans Times-Picayune, the Sewanee Purple, the Riverside Reader, the Baton Rouge Advocate, and most recently Austin.com. After years living in many cities and regions, he counts himself lucky enough to reside in the laid-back yet vibrant, friendly and creative city of Austin. Here he spends many of his days and nights either holed up like a hermit, reading or writing away-or prowling around, investigating all of the live music, delicious cuisine, and cultural hotspots he can find. As our Author of the Day, Chad tells us all about his latest book, The Second Cortez.
