A few years ago, when my Uncle died, I received his small collection of address books—he would get new ones every so often, and then transfer, update, and edit the names based on who was still alive or in his life. Most entries were people I also knew. A couple friends, but mostly family. Except one.

The name was of Asian origin, the address in Japan, and the man turned out to be a rather well-known chemist/artist. His name was in every address book, carefully updated, as if their relationship always continued.

Quotes by Karen A. Chase  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Upon returning home, I asked a Parisian friend who lives near me how she does it. How does she manage to adjust to our grocery stores and our food when she comes back from Paris? I was having a heck of a time with it. She shook her head sympathetically and said, “I remember one time I came back to the States. I went to the grocery store. I stood in the aisles. And I cried. I literally cried.”
Karen A. Chase, Bonjour 40: A Paris travel log

“Books aren't for decoration, they are to improve the design of one's interior.”
Karen A. Chase

“I enjoy writing historical fiction because it allows me to live more lives than just this one.”
Karen A. Chase
