Jane on tour

I'm taking a brisk walk through Central Park, listening to the most exciting part of Jane Eyre and am stopped by a tourist who wants to ask for directions.

Me: Hold on a sec, I need to pause my listening.

Lady: Sure, what are you listening to?

Me: Jane Eyre - it's right where she tells her stiff cousin it kills her to be with him.

Lady: Oh. Will she go on tour soon?

Me: What?

Lady: Will you see her in concert?

Me: No, like I said, I'm listening to Jane Eyre, the book.

Lady: I don't know what that is.

Me: It's...a book.

Lady: Ok, but where is the Merry-go-round?
