Found this in a used bookstore in Sheridan Wyoming. This was the first book I've read in a while that really had me turning the pages and blasting through; it was humorous, unique, multi-genre, and surprisingly emotional. There a few chapters sprinkl...more
Brad Erickson and 2 other people liked Jakey Gee's review of TransAtlantic:
TransAtlantic by Colum McCann

Virginia Woolf
“One feels even in the midst of the traffic, or waking at night, Clarissa was positive, a particular hush, or solemnity; an indescribable pause; a suspense before Big Ben strikes. There! Out it boomed. First a warning, musical; then the hour, irrevocable. The leaden circles dissolved in the air. Such fools we are, she thought, crossing Victoria Street. For Heaven only knows why one loves it so, how one sees it so, making it up, building it round one, tumbling it, creating it every moment afresh; but the veriest frumps, the most dejected of miseries sitting on doorsteps (drink their downfall) do the same; can't be dealt with, she felt positive, by Acts of Parliament for that very reason: they love life. In people's eyes, in the swing, tramp, and trudge; in the bellow and the uproar; the carriages, motor cars, omnibuses, vans, sandwich men shuffling and swinging; brass bands; barrel organs; in the triumph and the jingle and the strange high singing of some aeroplane overhead was what she loved; life; London; this moment in June.”
Virginia Woolf, Mrs. Dalloway
