Giddle treated them with patient indifference. They ordered hamburgers and coffee, always the same thing, and she attended them last, gave them lousy service. That was yet another thing I misread, Giddle’s indifference to them. I attributed it to her general feeling in regard to the art world - that part of it where people made art, sold the art, got in return money, fame, recognition. Success was highly overrated, according to Giddle. “Anyone can be a success,” she said “It’s so much more interesting to not want that."
