A Literary Novel: An example of Good Writing
"There is loneliness that can be rocked. Arms crossed, knees drawn up; holding, holding on, on this motion, unlike a ship's, smooths and contains the rocker. It's an inside kind---wrapped tight like skin. Then there is a loneliness that roams. No rocking can he it down. It is alive, on its own. A dry and spreading thing that makes the sound of one's own feet going seem to come from a far-off place."
