Charles Finch
“When you're finally a grown-up, one of the things you find is that there are no grown-ups.”
Charles Finch, The Last Enchantments

Charles Finch
“There is nobody as hopelessly vulgar as a British aristocrat...”
Charles Finch, The Last Enchantments

Charles Finch
“The river was glossy, narrow, and quick, a beautiful green color, with the white and maroon striped college punts strung along the near bank. .... The sun, westering, heavy, and hazy, was in those great final throes of energy before the sky whitens and clears, and evening comes. I stood and watched it. That immense body, dying trillions of feet away from me, still warming my face with its steady insensate chemistries.”
Charles Finch, The Last Enchantments

Charles Finch
“Like everyone I slipped into adulthood like a delinquent through the back door.”
Charles Finch, The Last Enchantments

Charles Finch
“And as I gazed up at the implacable black of the sky, my body warm from the bed but my face chilled, I thought of the terrible truth we all know, somewhere in our souls: that there has never been a shred of evidence that life goes beyond life. Nobody has sent back word. There is nothing. That does not mean there is nothing. But there is nothing.”
Charles Finch, The Last Enchantments
