Sunday Sentence

HarpersWeb-Cover-201507-302x410

 

In which I participate in David Abrams’s “Sunday Sentence” project, sharing the best sentence I’ve read during the past week, “out of context and without commentary.”

But the newspaper wasn’t there: that rascal of a neighbor, her enemy, must have already taken it with him.

TBR: “New Hebrew Writing”

Check it out. (Tip o’ the hat to The Literary Saloon for the find.)
