it was amazing
Read in August, 2011

Still my favorite book, for its literary perfection and human insight. An absolute small symphony containing themes of youth, and love, and war, and history, and even journalism. I mean the paired novellas "Old Mortality" and "Pale Horse, Pale Rider." The middle novella, "Noon Wine," is a scherzo of some sort and I never re-read it -- it interferes with the momentum of the two others. I read this book for a fiction course in college years ago and it's never run dry.
