Last weekend I returned to my apartment on Ile Saint Louis in Paris at 4:30am on Saturday morning after, of course, a heavy evening – since both the book club and the over-60s crochet society (honorary member) had events – to find my laptop gone, my mouse hurled across the floor, and the sheer curtains billowing ominously – and filmically – in the open window. Had I been burgled? Or had I, after book club and before crochet, come home in a moment of drunken sincerity regarding my own writing and hurled my computer from the window? I looked down to the street below; no smithereens were apparent. I had been robbed.
