Arthur is correct! (In that it's not MLK.)

5. I spent two years at the Mississippi State College for . . . adult people of my sex . . . completed my undergraduate degree in English literature at the University of Wisconsin, then studied advertising at Columbia University.

Not Ms. Lee. But that's a good guess.

7. Two years later I took a job at the Works Progress Administration. I also began hosting meetings for the Night-Blooming Cereus Club.

Getting back to Shackleton for a moment: the reason that I knew the name (more or less) is that he had had a case of blended Scotch whisky which was recently discovered.

Carson McCullough (sp?) I think that's who I'm thinking of --the woman who wrote Member of the Wedding?

Yes! There is also a commercially produced scotch named after him. I saw a bottle in my local store a couple of years ago and bought one. Unfortunately, I didn't care for it - but the bottle looks great Smile
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".

I know the feeling. I bought a bottle of Caol Ila several years ago and really didn't like it.

When I was consulting in Charlotte, NC in 2011/2012, there was a liquor store in South Carolina – literally a quarter mile from the state line – that had tastings every once in a while. That was perfect: I'm now a huge fan of Aberlour A'Bunadh.

McCullers.

Not she.

Here's a fascinating article on the scotch found under the ice at Shackleton's hut.

9. After publishing my first book of short stories, A Curtain of Green, I won a seat on the staff of The New York Times Book Review, as well as a Guggenheim Fellowship; these enabled me to travel to France, England, Ireland, and Germany.
