A Pakistani journal is publishing an article of mine about the Trump election. I’m thinking I need an attitude & some affectations to go with authorship. I’ll be reviewing videos of famous authors to see which persona suits me best: eccentric with peculiar twitches? ponderous & somewhat constipated? over-the-top dramatic & slightly scatterbrained? dripping with sincerity & something of a bore?

Any other ideas? I have to do this right in case Jimmy Fallon wants to interview me.

PS: Between you & me, I’m just delighted. But giddy is not the persona I would like to project.
