    It’s fun finding references to fountain pens on tv, too. In one episode of the series “Forever”, a fountain pen turns out to have been the murder weapon (the pen is mightier than the sword, after all). And an episode of “Elementary” featured a fountain pen and UV-flourescing invisible ink as vital clues to the murderer’s identity.

      A murder weapon! What a multi-purpose tool, our fountain pens are. It’s always a delight to see fountain pens popping up here and there – I’ll have to check out Elementary!

    Thanks so much for posting this! John Irving is one of my favourite authors and A Prayer for Owen Meany is on my list of all-time favourite novels. I think I may now need to re-read A Widow for One Year!
