网上情缘(二) Two Couples Meet JOE- Joe Fox. FRANK: Joe Fox? Inventor of the Superstore, enemy of the mid-list novel, destroyer of City Books -- tell me something: How do you sleep at night? Patricia joins them. PATRICIA: I use a wonderful over-the-counter drug, Ultrasom. Don't take the whole thing, just half, and you will wake up without even that tiniest hangover. You're Frank Navasky, aren't you? FRANK: Yes. PATRICIA: Your last piece in the Independent, the one about Anthony Powell, was brilliant. I'm Patricia Eden, Eden Books. Joe, this man is the greatest living expert on Julius and Ethel Rosenberg -- JOE: And this is Kathleen Kelly -- Kathleen glares at him. FRANK: You liked my piece. God, I'm flattered. You know you write these things and you think someone's going to mention them and then the whole week goes by and the phone doesn't ring, and you think Oh, God, I'm a fraud, a failure -- PATRICIA: You know what's always fascinated me about Julius and Ethel Rosenberg is how old they looked when they were really just our age. Everyone is stopped dead by this observation and looks at Patricia, who smiles at them all. PATRICIA(to Frank): I'm so happy to have finally met you. We will talk. Have you ever thought about doing a book? FRANK: Oh sure, it's passed through my head. Something is really relevant for today like the Luddite's movement in 19th century England.
