First in a Series: Conversations Between Brick Tamland and Alan Garner


Brick: I’m Brick Tamland. People seem to like me because I am polite and I am rarely late. I like to eat ice cream and I really enjoy a nice pair of slacks. Years later, a doctor will tell me that I have an I.Q. of 48 and am what some people call “mentally retarded.”

Alan: Okay, well, maybe we should tell that to Rain Man, because he practically bankrupted a casino, and he was a retard.

Brick: Fantastic.
