    Summary

    “Besides, Bobby says-”

    “Wait? Bobby?” Lenny sits up straight. “You call him Bobby?!”

    “He calls me Midge.” She says it like this’s nothing at all. “Miriam and Robert is a bit of a mouthful.

    “Mrs. Maisel, do I need to be concerned?” Lenny’s half joking, half feeling a strong possessiveness towards a woman who’s technically never been his girlfriend. “Because I have heard some stories.”

    Midge both sighs and laughs. “God, you’re almost as bad as Joel.”
    ***
    California, 1968. Midge is a "Campaigning Comedian" for a certain senator. Lenny is staying sober and trying to write a book. A chance to reconnect accidentally corresponds with a tragic night at a Los Angeles hotel.
