Reader #28

Man in his late forties scribbling notes on his notebook and his book. A Quick and Easy Guide to Food and Wine by Gene Gonzales, Thumbing his way from "dill" to "Mache" interspersed with more scribbling. He was lanky and sullen, his face a bit hollow, with the look of someone who havw been through a lot , maybe a Chinese vendor, or, as I later learned about his destination, a college professor in crop science.
