Rick is on page 80 of 336 of Ragtime: It's been around 35 years since I first read this in my mid-teens at the recommendation of my dad. I recall I enjoyed it then and am appreciating it even more now. Bravo Doctorow.

John Dufresne
“You can't possibly conduct a proper affair without a lot of deliberating, scheming, speculating, and conniving. It's a delicate balance where the excitement must equal the guilt and sex must be as bright as the future you gamble.”
John Dufresne, Love Warps the Mind a Little

John Dufresne
“Judi, a person’s worth isn’t measured by her utility. We’re not tools. We’re here to think. To feel. To be good to each other”
John Dufresne
