I stuck with this book despite a mid-read lag and finished it last night. Glad I did. The book’s last line completely won me.
I am counting down the days until I am in this city — is it America’s version of the City of Light? — with C for a few (childless) days in celebration of ten years of marriage. My friend Catherine, a frequent visitor to New Orleans, is helping me pour over places to go, things to do, cafes and bars to visit in idleness. Her husband’s advice: keep expectations low, don’t over-plan, see what unfolds.
