dear ellen

i bought the rights to richard yates' novels the easter parade and revolutionary road on ebay and i changed my legal name to richard yates. i bought hamster hair on ebay. when the hamster hair gets here i will paste it on my face using the facial reconstruction kit i bought last year on ebay. please call me richard yates from now on.

i don't know if i will like being richard yates.

i also bought a twelve-foot circumference plastic-glass alloy hamster ball with pale orange padding on ebay. i think i will live in the hamster ball.

richard yates
