My patient, loving wife, who has suffered so much from the work schedule of her crazy Protestant-ethic workaholic hubbie, which requires nearly 24-7 attention, is a total babe sprung to life from the pages of R. Crumb and a certain genre of Brazilian popular film from the 1970s.I feel sorry for you for not being married to her, ya poor bastard. The retired bicha grilo and punkette has a new book of short stories ready, including the near-novella length "In the Garden of Ceres," so she'll be hitting up the publishing houses. Can't afford an agent yet, published her last book without one. I've got her reading how-to books on novels and I do believe she has one brewing. When she's famous and has films made of her stories, I'll stay home and feed the cat while she's out doing the Brazilian version of the Letterman show and signing translated editions in Berlin. Oba oba oba, foca louca querida!

I'm a [freelance and contract] journalist, translator and editor helping to cover global securities markets from the point of view of the people who build and run them, among other things. I live in Brooklyn and [used to] work near Wall and Water in NYC. I am married to a crazy Brazilian. We have a cat named Iggy. I own a silver trombone. I am learning bossa nova chords on my Martin Backpacker and reading the Empires of Light, a history of the AC-DC standards wars, while waiting for Gary Weiss's new book to arrive. All dumb-ass opinions and errors on this page are mine alone: in the newsroom, you have lots of other eyeballs to keep you from fouling up. Not so on the blog.
