Flaubert's Errand #1
5 exquisitely crafted sentences of prose I encountered in my recent reading.
“A library in the middle of a community is a cross between an emergency exit, a life raft and a festival.”
"From the air California can look like an archipelago of prisons.”
“Bernini had discovered a way to make marble movies.”
“Technology is the means of controlling the world without experiencing it.”
“Bare feet and literacy are not incompatible.”
