the annihilation of all you know

Wednesday, September 23, 2009

Does overwhelming change, the annihilation of all you know, create an intensity of memory that would not have existed otherwise? When all you know is lost and gone forever, does it become sweeter in the mind? Does it make you want to let go or hold on even tighter?

- Charles Frazier, Thirteen Moons, 2006

I had a look at wikipedia's plot summary of the book and it seems like it may be quite a good read.
Just about to start on Capote's telling of the Kansas murders but if I come across a copy of this book I expect i'll buy it.
It was only after I'd found 'In Cold Blood' recently while browsing in a Dublin bookshop that I realised I'd seen the title on your book list of books you'd read, weird stuff!
