ASK/CHICAGO: 1 OF MY TOP 5 BOOKS OF ALL TIMES THAT SPANS TIME (i.e.: from the 1900s to the 2000s we could say) that I ever read is now transformed into a leading and well-anticipated Chicago Performance. That timeless Production is:
THE PHANTOM TOLLBOOTH
by NORTON JUSTER, Author & JULES FEIFFER, Illustrator
that I had the honor of meeting twice at the Jean Albano Art Gallery in River North in Chicago.

My Boyfriend/Fiancée, ROBERT E. HOFSTADTER (of the famed Family that won 3 Pulitzers & 1 Nobel Prize) bought the Book for me as a Gift when I was in my late 50s right before I began writing:
SKiN: Sacred Kinship in Nature
How 10 Beloved Plush Toys Redefine Race (C)2009
and was fully influenced in being bound and determined to the write something of great Substance & Conviction that would last through Time & Space in essence, style and character(s) as THE PHANTOM TOLLBOOTH has, had and continues to do so.
Upon rereading it every year, I can honestly say THE PHANTOM TOLLBOOTH is as darling then; now as it would have been – as a Storyline & Plot -- had I read it when I was a bit younger or as a Kid 50 years ago.
C U there. Dress as your Favorite Character! That’s what I plan to do.
The Circle completes itself.
