A summer's night in the park with Bill

It was one of those days in Manhattan when you can see the heat rising from the streets and the feel of your shoes sinking into the asphalt. It was a Friday in July and I was sapped. Juggling my alcoholic boss and a belligerent Bernadette Peters made me churlish and all I wanted to do was crawl into our air-conditioned sanctuary. It was the middle of a heat wave and although we had plans to see Patti Smith in a free spoken word performance in Central Park, I wanted to slither home and fasten the couch to my butt.
