The Journey of The Fisherman and His Wife – 11/14/15

Another favorite note buried in some correspondence to John Updike regarding the species of Fish “I’m sorry – it’s not a flounder, it’s a halibut”.   Indeed, while the Magic Fish is referred to as a flounder, the costume is clearly NOT a flounder.  A halibut, albeit a red halibut.  Art.
