Chapter Seventeen. I know it sounds dull at the moment, but giving the chapter a title hasn't been easy for your writer of pulp. The tentative title is Wine and Cafe which is very far from satisfactory because our hero has particular associations with the word wine and the word cafe. His understanding of wine is most allied to high level snoot factor, whining and wheedling, and around the word cafe our hero has a whole lot of allergic responses which are probably best summarized by the words Starbucks, briefcases and over priced double de-cafe lattes.
Yes indeed, our hero is a complex character, he might even be too complex for
your writer of pulp, his place on the Christmas tree more like a metaphorical
recess in the psychology wards of academia than a bright shining bauble from
which tinsel is strung during carol singing season. One possible solution to
Chapter Seventeen is to give it the title The Garters which is the name
of the establishment currently employing our hero. For my part I think The
Garters might work as a title because I'm pretty sure that a substantial
proportion of the world will share our hero's poor reaction to The Garters
as the name for any kind of place that offers food and lodging.
