Whopper of the Week: Lynne Cheney

"I don't remember the plot."
--Lynne Cheney to New York Times reporter Melinda Henneberger on being asked to comment on the 1981 novel, Sisters.

"Let us go away together, away from the anger and imperatives of men. There will be only the two of us, and we shall linger through long afternoons of sweet retirement. In the evenings I shall read to you while you work your cross-stitch in the firelight. And then we shall go to bed, our bed, my dearest girl."
--Love letter from one woman character to another in Sisters, as quoted by Henneberger.

Lynne Cheney
