question This custom began, as I say, after the second book. When we'd each had a glass of champagne and a refill, I took her into the office, where a single sheet of paper still stuck out of my forest-green Selectric. On the lake, one last loon cried down dark, that call that always sounds to me like something rusty turning slowly in the wind. 'I thought you said you were done,' she said. 'Everything but the last line,' I said. 'The book, such as it is, is dedicated to you, and I want you to put down the last bit.' Question: Does ‘This custom began, as I say, after the second book’ mean ‘This custom began FROM THE THIRD BOOK?’ If not, what does it mean?
