“I like small universes where we don’t expect them, parallel structures.” Arthur Blume, An Absolute Gentleman
“I loved that book. I wanted it published so desperately that I didn’t dare think about it. It would stir me up like a fire and I’d be miserable for days. I had to teach myself patience, patience, patience.” Arthur Blume, An Absolute Gentleman.
“The night did have noise, even when it wasn’t a particular sound. But she knew when she was hearing it. A rustling of life or of settling down. Maybe the rustle of the whole world. It was a pleasant sound, very soothing, everyone together at last. She got back in bed and closed her eyes. She almost had the whole backyard scene again when she felt herself falling asleep. She thought one of God’s real gifts was sleep. She had always welcomed it like the gift it was.” Oida, A Near-Perfect Gift.
