Adjustments by Will Willingham
“The corridor narrowed to a fine point far ahead, seeming to stretch to infinity, or maybe just to Fargo. Will wasn't sure which was worse.”

“In fact, Barbara's biggest secret was Will.”

Adjustments by Will Willingham
“Rightie-tightie, Will," Joe said. "Leftie-loosie."

"Never has a more useful rhyme been written," Will said, "assuming a guy knows which is his left and right.”

“Keats, Mr. Phillips? Am I to believe you were on my roof reading John Keats?”
Will Willingham, Adjustments: a novel

“He harbored a hidden inclination toward poetry but in the hard boiled world of adjusting, reading a sonnet seemed like something that could get a guy killed. It was perfect, Ben had told him. Like a book with a compartment cut out of the pages to hide a flask of whiskey, this one also let a guy hide a secret vice: the cover was bound upside down. So he could read the book, and if anyone saw him, it would look like he was posing.

Plausible deniability.”
Will Willingham, Adjustments: a novel

“Poetry could surely slow a guy down.”

“Keats, Mr. Phillips? Am I to believe you were on my roof reading John Keats?”
Will Willingham, Adjustments: a novel

“There in the moonlit silence, Will found himself wanting. Lacking, yes. He always found himself lacking. But tonight he also found himself wanting something he couldn’t quite put his finger on. A wishing he felt in his chest and as the silence grew more quiet, the wanting grew more noisy.”

“Poetry could surely slow a guy down.”
Will Willingham, Adjustments: a novel

“Will asked the same questions as many times as he’d read the verse. What did Keats want to do, why would it take so many years, and what the hell ever got done just because a guy decided to overwhelm himself in poetry called by an old fashioned word?”
