Authors Behaving Feloniously Episode #6186

Dear Ms. Hanlon-Tarasov:

Next time, I would just cut off his penis. It is much more acceptable and less felonious than chucking a phone book at the dear hubby’s head (no entendre intended).

Emily Hanlon-Tarasov, author of the British best-seller “Petersburg,” knocked her husband unconscious in their Yorktown home during an argument this week. more

Best regards,

    I hit my husband in the head with a half gallon of Newmann’s Own Lemonade. Threw it like a football and the darn thing exploded all over the kitchen, what a mess. Next time I’ll try the telephone book, less to clean up.

The possibilities and provocations are endless.
