The Stone Diaries

"And, oh dear, dear, she is cursed with the lonely woman's romantic imagination and thus can support only happy endings.
Still, hers is the only account there is, written on air, written with imagination's invisible ink."

"Out of a spiral of thin-colored sleep."

"A gentleman always supports himself on his elbows".

Autoarea acestor minunatii elegante, Carol Shields, s-a nascut in 1935, a crescut cinci copii, a predat la universitati si a scris povestiri scurte si un roman - the Stone Diaries - castigator al premiului Pulitzer pentru literatura.

O imagine a fericirii la care tanjesc.
