A short story by Robert Cormack.
“Acting isn’t important in the scheme of things. Plumbing is.” Spencer Tracy
My wife wants to know about my grandfather, a printer by trade, then a Shakespearean actor. I have to admit, nobody’s asked about him in a long time. Even when I was growing up, he was already an old man, living down the hall in my parents’ house, his room smelling of cigarettes.
