By the time Letitia James arrives at Mikes Restaurant in Fort Greene, she is running an hour behind. But she doesnt settle at her table until shes greeted several patrons, all of whom treat her with near reverential respect. She is coming from a senior center, where one poem became two poems became ten, and I couldnt leave.
