blogged about McBride's novel earlier in the year and picked out the following passage as an example:
'It all matters. That someone turns out the lamp…tells the story honestly, acknowledges help, gives credit… wipes the counter, waits at the yellow, makes the bed… accepts the consequences, takes a stand, steps up, offers a hand, goes first, goes last, chooses the small portion, teaches the child, tends the dying' (p197)
A must read, I look forward to reading more from Laura McBride in the future.
