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.”

“That once on this earth”—his voice began to break— “once on this earth, there was a person named Michael Shestak, and Ez Slavin talked to him and recognized him for being just that.”
