Actually, that would be very much not New York.I thought of interrupting my conversation and excusing myself to chase Flusser down...but that would have been rude and very New York.
I can understand the temptation. Really, if it were anywhere else but New York I think it could have been done.What I was trying to get at was ambition. It would have made a lot of sense to end the conversation I was having, introduce myself, give Flusser my card and tell him what a fan I am of his books, style and would he be having a sale anytime soon. I just thought that would a been a rude thing to do. Especially since the dealer was charming and giving me time without a hard sale. But I appreciate your comments and your condolences.
