I have considered this story very carefully and taken much longer than I usually take with it, because it is so much better than most of what we received -- a powerful voice, created with full authority, and interesting from the first sentence to the last. But for some reason, in my numerous re-readings, it just never added up to a Threepenny story, so I am regretfully turning it down, in the certainty that you will find a good home for it elsewhere. I hope you will send us more of your fine work; it is great to be hearing from a REAL writer who lives so far away.
