I ANSWERED THE PHONE, AND THERE WAS A WOMAN‘S VOICE on the other end, a voice that I didn‘t recognize. “Is this Frances Budge?” she asked, and I was certain it was a telemarketer, because nobody called me Frances. . . . I said, “I‘m sorry, but I‘m not interested,” and started to hang up, but the woman, understanding that I was done with her, tried her best to pull me in. . . .

Sophronisba “The edge is a shantytown filled with gold seekers,” she said, her voice rising in pitch, and I froze. I nearly dropped the phone. And together, in harmony, we both completed the phrase, “We are fugitives, and the law is skinny with hunger for us.” 3d

It was said, or so he had been told: Fatima, beloved daughter of the Prophet, had not felt the heat of the fire as she stirred a pot of simmering halva with her hand. She didn't feel the burning sugar climbing her arm, darkening to the color of her skin, such was her grief.

First, I got myself born. A decent crowd was on hand to watch, and they've always given me that much: the worst of the job was up to me, my mother being let's just say out of it.
