The response from Ricci (now in hiding somewhere along the American border): “I am heartened by the vigour of the response to my article.

Looks like he’s trying to win a third award for fiction with this piece.’ I hope Mr. Boos is meaning to imply that whatever the shortcomings of my piece in terms of its understanding of the issues, it is at least well-written.”
