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.”

She is sequins and animal print; cigarette smoke and Calvin Klein perfume; acrylic nails and thick, matte lipstick; obscenities and dirty jokes and costume jewelry; she is four weddings, three divorces, and zero apologies, starched whites and pressed seams, secret recipes and grudges and malocchio hexes and fierce, overprotective love, all cramped into a five-foot frame.
