“I've always found that a really lively argument depends on the ignorance of the combatants.”
Guy Vanderhaeghe, Man Descending: Selected Stories

“Sometimes I feel entirely disassociated from what I do. It's a malady of the modern age.”
Guy Vanderhaeghe, Man Descending: Selected Stories

“News of the disaster at Little Bighorn reached the Eastern Seaboard shortly after July 4, and not just any ordinary July 4 but the grand celebration of the hundredth anniversary of the founding of the Republic. A country feeling its oats, flexing its muscles, vigorous and rich, cocksure and confident, has seen the impossible happen, the unthinkable become fact. Sitting Bull has spoiled their glorious Centennial, pissed on Custer's golden head, the head of a genuine Civil War hero, the head of someone who has recently been touted as a future President of the United States. Somehow a wedding and a funeral got booked for the same hour in the same church.”
Guy Vanderhaeghe, A Good Man
