They’ve told you the date – 5 October, for sure?
Yes, they’ve told me the date – Glen Schaefer telephoned two days ago.
Well, that’s good to know. Will it have pictures in it?
I hope it will. When they interviewed me, Chris, the photographer, was popping pictures from every angle – even artsy shots reflected in a mirror. I was most impressed.
So there’ll be a picture of you, maybe?
Maybe, but hopefully they’ll focus on Rufus’s diaries and the man himself. However, it won’t be a review of the book. I think it’ll be the story of a forgotten Cold Case – concentrating on Lukin Johnston’s interview with Hitler and on what happened to him afterwards.
Is that the article that Rufus filed after the interview?
It is – clipped from the Province by Bee herself.
But your book will be mentioned in next Sunday’s article, won’t it?
Of course – and I’m sure it will also tell Province readers how to get a copy.
You know, the story would make a good movie – have you thought about that?
It certainly would, and yes, I have thought about it. Who knows, maybe the Province article will inspire someone to write the script. The story’s too good for amateurs – it needs a scriptwriter who knows what they’re doing.
Someone like Rufus himself, perhaps?
Precisely, my dear Watson!
