9781457504884: Ten Nobodies (and Their Somebodies)

Ten Nobodies (and their somebodies Here are narratives by "nobodies" who were privileged (or, in some cases, not) to be employed by or otherwise to have served famous people. They include corpulent Horatio, who serves as "a sort of muse" to a grieving William Shakespeare; Mose, a runaway slave who serves as a masseur and bedtime reader to Anne Bonny, the fierce but nervous pirate; and Parson, a spiritual advisor to Davy Crockett. There's Buffalo Hump Woman, a hairstylist to General Custer; ten-year-old Mimsy, a tea party assistant to aged Lewis Carroll; pretty Antoinette, who serves as a maid for Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas; and Louie, a press aide to President William Howard Taft, whose endeavor is to mislead the press as to Taft's true weight. There's burnt-out Jean, a fortuneteller for Marilyn Monroe; and Percy, a spy for temperamental Vince Lombardi. And Solly, who serves as a trivia research assistant to retired gangster Meyer Lansky in Miami Beach. Martin Drapkin Ten Nobodies (and their somebodies) is Marty Drapkin's second published work of fiction. His first was Now and at the Hour (Dog Ear Publishing, 2009). He's written and published nonfiction books and articles in his professional field, having to do with county jail operations. He is a selfdescribed faceless bureaucrat laboring unappreciated for an obscure state government agency-the proverbial man in the gray flannel suit, leading a life of quiet desperation. He is also a photographer, specializing in black-and-white portraits of mothers and daughters. Marty and his wife, Erica, live in Cross Plains, Wisconsin, with a motley crew of dogs and cats, all of whom have issues. He has a grown daughter who lives in Seattle and doesn't mind the rain.
