the last book I ever read (Letterman: The Last Giant of Late Night by Jason Zinoman, excerpt two)

from Letterman: The Last Giant of Late Night by Jason Zinoman:

Merrill Markoe was thrilled when she got offered a job writing on a new variety show starring Mary Tyler Moore, called Mary. The day after spending the night with Letterman, she went to work on the show for the first time. At the writers’ meeting, she checked out the list of cast members and was shocked to see Letterman’s name. Even though they were spending most nights together, he had never mentioned he was working on the same show. She later learned he had known she was up for the job. Looking back, Markoe said this was “a portent of many things to come.”
