"Last Supper" in Mission at 10th
"What a bad man."
— Leslie Meredith
Dystel, Goderich & Bourret
Sometimes fiction contains real people, as in this story, “Last Supper,” about French cycling great of yesteryear, Jacques Anquetil. Actually it’s more about Jacques’ wife, Jeannine, and a certain scandal they endured after Jacques’ retirement. The facts are out there. All I’ll say is it’s very French, very sixties. The emotional aftermath of the scandal is the untold part of the story and thereby free for my conjecture. That’s what I chose to write about.
