There’s rosemary too, also dill and tiny tomatoes, mostly yellow, remaining in the garden. Ginger boiled in water overpowers a case of indigestion from who nows what. August’s come and gone, September brings that beguiling light, Virgo birthdays, visitors from England who’ve never been to America before. ELEPHANT IN THE LIVING ROOM trembles on a thin knife-edge as its publication date approaches.  Author’s photos (below, Alison Leslie Gold and Peaches the dog, left, Darin Elliott with an anonymous Greek kitten, right,) are meant to be in keeping with the tone of the book which is told by a lost rescue dog named Beckett and includes a parrot, a rabbit, three love-starved dobermans.
