A few months ago, Friend A told me about Friend B, “Her father is a conman.” And suddenly everything fell into place. All sorts of things that didn’t make sense suddenly made sense. The remark took all these jagged edges in my head about Friend B and her family and made them smooth. Gossip is most powerful when it renders explicable with utmost simplicity what has been previously inexplicable.
