Random literary references. Sorkin loves a literary reference. These references almost never come during an academic scene, or coupled with a recommendation of some kind.

About the Illustrator Molly Idle began her career as an artist working for DreamWorks Feature Animation, and from there she leapt into the world of children's books. She lives in Tempe, Arizona.
