a lifetime with this woman

Saturday, March 15, 2008

"Ah, two days on that magical island offered almost enough beauty and happiness to justify one's existence. And how close they'd come to making it work! It still took his breath away, imagining it, a lifetime with this woman. Even now he would've jumped at the chance, though the drawn, emaciated woman...was almost unrecognizable as the one true love of is life."

- Richard Russo, Empire Falls, 2001

What is wrong with you.

First you read about incest, pedophilia, murder, prostitution, bestiality, memory loss, incessant rain, insomnia, etc. and now story about a woman who went through hell.

Then there's the book a about a man and a whining boy pushing cart with a bad wheel on the road that you are so excited about. :)
