So many of the writers that I read and admire live in the New England States or lived there until they died. Stephen King, Richard Ford, Kate Christensen, Ann Beattie—just to name a few—are still alive. John Updike and J.D. Salinger are not. You get the idea.
There’s some beautiful country up there and some beautiful homes, but I don’t think there is a more beautiful home than P.J. O’Rourke’s 18th Century house in New Hampshire. Here. Just go to this link to get a little tour of the house conducted by Mr. O’Rourke himself.
OK. You’re back.
I want P.J. O’Rourke’s house. Chances are I won’t be getting it. Richard Ford has a beautiful home in East Boothbay, Maine. Maybe I can get that one.
Maybe I can just stay here in Covington.
Regardless of where I am, I’ll be back here on Wednesday.
