Sparrow is getting his teeth rearranged at “the wild and woolly” New York University Dental School. He says, “You have to wait an enormously long time and be worked on by people who are almost shaking with fear — students. The last time I went, this Italian from Italy, Nicole, cleaned me. Very sober young woman, glasses and impressively bad complexion, businesslike, distant, and yet when she leaned on me, to polish my bicuspids, I felt in her arm this great tenderness. We had a short conversation afterward, I paid thirty-five dollars, and left feeling like I’d gone to a prostitute. One of my great experiences.”
