“Love is not sufficient. It never has been. Stories that claim otherwise are lies. There's always SOMETHING after happily ever after.”
Arthur Phillips, The Song Is You

“He fell in love with Manhattan's skyline, like a first-time brothel guest falling for a seasoned professional. He mused over her reflections in the black East River at dusk, dawn, or darkest night, and each haloed light-in a tower or strung along the jeweled and sprawling spider legs of the Brooklyn Bridge's spans-hinted at some meaning, which could be understood only when made audible by music and encoded in lyrics.”
Arthur Phillips, The Song Is You

“How much of life could he spend aching? Aching is not a stable condition; it must resolve into something”
Arthur Phillips, The Song Is You

Lily I just finished reading "the song is you" and I really loved it. During the last 15 pages I had this desperate need to listen to "I cover the waterfront" because I had never heard it before. I found myself searching itunes for a live copy, just hoping to hear Julian's father on the beginning of the track.

It's been awhile since I've read a book I enjoyed this much. Thank you so much.

Thanks, Tom - that's very gratifying, to say the least.
