Aluminum tables were hauled upstairs from the basement, slid from their cardboard cartons, and set up on the lawn. My father and I brought up the folding chairs while my grandmother unfolded the heavy linen tablecloths. Agnes, in a white uniform, carried out platters of blintzes and peroshke, pastry stuffed with dry shreds of meat.

He worked for Ralph Nader, and had to get back to Washington. He was always going somewhere, I brooded as he unloaded his hanging bag and briefcase. Five years older than I, he had gone off to college when I was thirteen, and had lived in South America for three years after graduation.
