Augustus’s Recent Updates

“With nowhere to go but inward, Lee burrowed. She tunneled inside herself a little more each day, without direction or even a sense of what was up or down; there was only inward.”
Augustus Rose, The Readymade Thief

“You are too young, I think, to understand yet the nature of desire. You know what it is to want, perhaps even to yearn, but true desire is something else entirely.”
Augustus Rose, The Readymade Thief

“Lee tried to imagine spending that much of her life dedicated to something so inconsequential. Then she thought of what she had spent time on in her life, and what it had amounted to.”
Augustus Rose, The Readymade Thief
