What I like the best is a book that's at least funny once in a while. I read a lot of classical books, like The Return of the Native and all, and I like them, and I read a loto of war books and mysteries and all, but they don't knock me out too much. What really knocks me out is a book that, when you're all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote ut was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt it. That doesn't happen much, though. I wouldn't mind calling Isak Dinesen up. And Ring Lardner, except that D.B. told me he's dead. You take that book Of Human Bondage, by Somerset Maugham, though. I read it last summer. It's a pretty good book and all, but I wouldn't want to call Somerset Maugham up. I don't know. He just isn't the kind of guy I'd want to call up, that's all.

I think that'll do, he said. That'll do just fine. You know about love, I can see that. But let me just add my own thoughts. Love is the most important part of life, isn't it. If you have love you can live in this world in a true way and if you love each other you can see past everything and accept what you don't understand and forgive what you don't know or don't like. Love is all. Love is patient and bound-less and right-hearted and long-suffering. I hope you may love each other all your days of life together. And I hope you may have a great many years of those days.
They sat looking at him talk. Yes sir, we will, the boy said. He glanced at the woman. Can you perform the service now?

10 righe da pagina 1:

While Pearl Tull was dying, a funny thought occurred to her. It twiched her lips and rustled her breath, and she felt her son lean forward from where he kept watch by her bed. "Get..." she told him. You should have got..."
You should have got an extra mother, was what she meant to say, the way we started exra children after the first child fell so ill. Cody, that was; the older boy. Not Ezra here beside her bed but Cody the troublemaker-a difficult baby, born late in her life. They had decides on no more. Then he developed croup. This was in 1931, when croup was something serious

10 righe da pagina 5:

Sulla bella costa della riviera francese, a mezza strada tra Marsiglia e il confine italiano, sorge un albergo rosa, grande e orgoglioso. Palme deferenti ne rinfrescano la facciata rosata, e davanti a esso si stende una breve spiaggia abbagliante. Recentemente è diventato un ritrovo estivo di gente importante e alla moda; dieci anni fa, quando in aprile la clientela inglese andava verso il Nord, era quasi deserto. Ora molte villette vi si raggruppano intorno; ma quando questa storia incomincia, soltanto i tetti di una dozzina di vecchie ville marcivano come ninfee in mezzo ai pini ammassati tra l'Hotel des Etrangers di Gausse e Cannes, otto chilometri più in là.
