Planning ahead .
Time to plan a trip away from the Rickety Old Farmhouse. The LRB bookstore doesn't sell travel guides but Daunts on Marylebone High Street does. Reservations made at hotels in Maine and Massachusetts. A few nights in Cambridge en route . The concierge at a hotel on Nantucket e-mails with the suggestion that " you let us know your choice of restaurants , what nights, number of people and what time you like to eat at least two , and preferably three , months prior to arrival ". Three months in advance ! Nantucket vacationers must be particularly well ordered people. We'll be there in a little over a month . Will we be able to eat ?
