The Lowland by Jhumpa Lahiri
The Lowland

All of Lahiri's stories are unresolved, leaving a lot of space for after thoughts. But this one is especially unsatisfying. I don't know what to make of Gauri. Lahiri seems bent on making her readers hate and pity Gauri.

These short stories are so dauntingly beautiful. Some of them gave me the creeps.

My favorites are A Wild Swan, Steadfast Ten and Ever After.

Walt Whitman
“Apart from the pulling and hauling stands what I am,
Stands amused, complacent, compassionating, idle, unitary,
Looks down, is erect, or bends an arm on an impalpable certain rest,
Looking with side-curved head curious what will come next,
Both in and out of the game and watching and wondering at it.”
Walt Whitman, Song of Myself

Pierre Bayard
“The books we love offer a sketch of a whole universe that we secretly inhabit, and in which we desire the other person to assume a role.

One of the conditions of happy romantic compatibility is, if not to have read the same books, to have read at least some books in common with the other person—which means, moreover, to have non-read the same books. From the beginning of the relationship, then, it is crucial to show that we can match the expectations of our beloved by making him or her sense the proximity of our inner libraries.”
Pierre Bayard, How to Talk About Books You Haven't Read

Lin Yutang
“If you can spend a perfectly useless afternoon in a perfectly useless manner, you have learned how to live”
