Sunday Sentence

The Betrayers
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.”


“The day’s heat had subsided, and the nighttime air felt gentle, consoling, as if bestowed upon them by a sympathetic spirit.”

    Gorgeous sentence. It makes me want to read the book and jot down those bits of prose that make me stop mid-chapter and feel them on my tongue.
