My Fortune Cookie

Nathaniel Hawthorne went home to tell his wife that he had just been fired from his first job. Good, she said. Now you can write your book.What do we live on meanwhile? Hawthorne asked.
His wife opened a drawer filled with money. I have always known that you are a man of a genius,she said. So I have saved a little each week, and now I have enough to last a year.Hawthorne used the time to write The Scarlet Letter,one of the great masterpieces of American Literature.
