Sunday Sentence

Another Sunday in which I participate in David Abrams’s “Sunday Sentence” project, which asks others to share the best sentence(s) we’ve read during the past week, “out of context and without commentary.”

“Behind every great Russian child, there is a Russian grandmother who acts as chef de cuisine, bodyguard, personal shopper, and PR agent.”

Source: Gary Shteyngart’s Little Failure, which has so many excellent sentences that it is nearly impossible to choose just one. And I’m only halfway through!

    Good one!
    It reminds me of my granny though two of my cousins were “great Russian children” not me… 😉

    It’s definitely one of the titles soon to appear on my “to-read pile”!
