page 97 of 296 of The Lost Steps

Mainly it’s the narrator’s observations that keep me going, otherwise the book is mostly pretty obvious whose insights are not nearly as profound (or even insightful) as they could be.

Yet there is a strangeness too, and it’s enticing. These lost steps (musical term) slowly become audible, the score is filled in, a melody is apparent. There magic in the music, even in the sound of a fruit falling in the night.
