She knows the secret knock to a dozen underground establishments on the West Side and the West Bank. Dances flamenco on the weekends. Speaks five languages, only two of them European. Drives comfortably on either side of the road. Has been known to wither an entire board in less than fifty words and to rally their support again in thirty. Owns every first edition of Joyce and Wharton. Spends a month every summer in St. Michaels to improve her sailing.
I asked her once for the secret in her approach to life.
“Never take maybe for an answer.”
