Sunday Guest: Trumpkin
From: CS Lewis' Prince Caspian (The Chronicles of Narnia)
The quote: "Oh, I'm a dangerous criminal, I am," said the Dwarf cheerfully. "But that's a long story. Meantime, I was wondering if perhaps you were going to ask me to breakfast? You've no idea what an appetite it gives one, being executed."
The anniversary: The day before yesterday, Nov. 22, it was exactly 50 years after Lewis' death. But of course the world had a more tragic 50th anniversary to remember.
