Old Office in Chelsea

This is a photograph of my old office in Chelsea. The black book in the top right-hand corner is a copy of Tropic of Capricorn or Tropic of Cancer ( I don't remember.) that was stolen from my desk. Janitor? In the bottom right-hand corner is a stack of query letters and envelopes for a children's book that I was trying to sell. That book (i.e. idea) was stolen too. I never got around to trying to sue, but I will eventually.
