Bart: Did you know Kevin McCarthy and Mary McCarthy were brother and sister? I think I recall you telling me this years ago.

Hugo: Actually, I think that the Paris Review interview w/ Mary McCarthy mentions this-- either in the introductory notes, or she mentions it in passing over the course of her interview. I seem to remember that when we met in '79 we surprised each other by simultaneously noting our fondness for the Paris Review interviews. Is Paris Review still around? Do they still do those interviews? And isn't italicizin' a load of fun?
