"Finished with Genesis. A book of journeys and peregrinations: the exile from Eden, the wandering patriarchs, Jacob’s sons going back and forth to and from Egypt, crossing rivers and making camp. Generally pretty interesting." Feb 17, 2019 10:17AM

"I’ve been reading a letter or two every evening before I go to bed, thinking of that Saul Bellow quote (“Unexpected intrusions of beauty”), the little things that Vladimir notices—the cast of the sky, the sound of the rain, children singing at recess, glowing windows at dusk, poems, pet names, greetings—the things he puts down in a letter to share with Véra. The little threads of love and connection." Jan 26, 2019 09:48AM

So much has been written about this great work that I really have nothing to add to the conversation except the admittedly childish observation that when the characters narrate their sword fights it sounds hilariously sexual.
