Sunday Sentence

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.”

It’s incredible to me now that I didn’t know this, that there was once a time when I actually believed it was possible to love a child and not be profoundly, irreparably altered.

      Oh, I read that sentence, and I immediately dog-eared the page. What an incredible essay. Thank you for sharing it with readers.
