The Thread (20)

 Author's voice in grey. 

  1. “1 minute read”? Took me closer to 4’33”.

  2. Do you think I should take John Cage out of the title? Or would it be pure mystery without that?

  3. What about John Cage Has No Time To Read? Or Overheard at John Cage’s Book Club?

  14. A connection heretofore unnoticed.
