"You've Known That Hollow Sound of Your Own Steps in Flight..."
by Ann Patchett
"...a spectacular autumn book: moody and thoughtful, gentle in its handling of weighty topics, and quietly suspenseful."--Holly Silva, The St Louis Post-Dispatch
Quintessential Sentence: "Anger and sadness and a sense of injustice that was bigger than any one thing that had happened stoked an enormous fire in her chest and that fire kept her heart vibrant and hot and alive, a beautiful, infallible machine."
Favorite word: Enneacanthus obesus
Full Disclosure: Ann Patchett could write out a grocery list and I would love it.
