Memory and Myth

*Sigh*  I have been known to go on and on about the critical nature of attention to factual accuracy in nonfiction writing.  So it is with a certain amount of friendly egg on my face that subsequent to this recent post I have had a discussion with the Julie in question and not only does she deny that she was wearing rhinestone glasses and a vintage black slip when we met in prison (vintage grey men’s pants, black turtleneck, men’s shoes, and tortoise-shell glasses, she says), she also reports that I have previously and alternatively described her as wearing a black mini-skirt rather than a black slip.

So.  I shall adjust the myth accordingly.  Having said that, you will understand my confusion should you actually obtain a copy of their new book and review the portrait in which Julie is loading hay in a vintage black…wait, I’m gonna go fact-check that.
