Shortly, you’ll meet Liz, Jack, and Paul. But first, let me introduce myself. Else Tyroler is my assumed name — that is, the name of myself as a character in this work. It works, because, the character within this work is completely Else Tyroler, though of course, outside this work, she is not quite, but that is why I [author speaking] have put her here.
The “real” Else Tyroler wrote a book called Sewing Pants for Women which I noticed glowing in a patch of sunlight amid a litter of other articles on the floor of my roommate’s bedroom in our lovely apartment.
So hello, and thanks for reading; the book draft to follow may or may not please you, but this at least shall constitute a warning.
