Random Quote Tuesday

"He had good days and bad days. It was as if when he lay down in bed for a night certain humors pooled in the right or wrong places, like marinade around a flank steak, and in the morning his nerve endings either had enough of what they needed or did not; as if his mental clarity might depend on something as simple as whether he'd lain on his side or on his back the night before; or as if, more disturbingly, he were a damaged transistor radio which after a vigorous shaking might function loud and clear or spew nothing but static laced with unconnected phrases, the odd strain of music."

~~Jonathan Franzen, The Corrections


  1. This book has been on my "to read" list forever. This quote may have moved it up a few notches. You are enabler. Feeding my reading addiction.

  2. Proud to be an enabler, at least in this department. ;) The book is big, but worth the time.
