Example text

She is quite cheerfully keeping herself company, just in case you might not really be there. As soon as I arrived she began to talk, one thought leading to the next in a way that left me little chance to suggest that we begin work. Myrna is shy with people she doesn’t know well but, unwilling to give in to her shyness, tries to talk herself out of it. Even while she extolled the prosaic virtues of the Chemex coVee-maker with which she made coVee for me, I was easily lulled by the charm of her voice and her idiosyncratic phrasing of words.
