Above is a photograph of our old office in Chelsea. The black book in the top right-hand corner is a hardcover of Tropic of Capricorn that was stolen from our desk. Janitor?
In the bottom right-hand corner is a stack of query letters and envelopes for a children's book that we were trying to sell. That book (i.e., idea) was stolen too. Scholastic?
By the time we sought legal advice from the Volunteer Lawyers For the Arts, the statute of limitations had passed.
