You can see me off in the corner with my "Brockman is My Homeboy" shirt on.

Well, you did not hear me in the background cheering you down the aisle...the shame is aalll their's! If it makes you feel any better, nobody knows what you or Rosset looks like so...maybe they just thought you were there to throw confetti...

I thought I was a lock too, Denise. In fact, if you watch the video with Scott Turow reading off the names of the shortlist, there's an embarrassing moment when he announces Rosset's name but I didn't hear. You can just see me staggering down the carpet toward the stage, tears in my eyes, already unfolding my acceptance speech, when I realize whose name he actually called... My moment of shame.

"Oh, snaaaaaaaaaaaap! They were like, "Hey Chris, how was your weekend? Did you exercise your Second Amen—WE ACCEPT YOUR RESIGNATION NOW GET THE HELL OUT AND NEVER COME BACK, TRAITOR!" You slay me.

"Literarian Award for Outstanding Service to the American Literary Community: Barney Rosset" I coulda sworn that would go to you, Brockman!
