I’m reading The Green Road by Anne Enright. I’m a huge fan of hers, but I’m having a little trouble getting into this one. I started it on the Kindle, then ordered the book and re-started it. I don’t feel like I have to finish it, but because it’s Enright, I want to give it a good effort.
Take a look at these two descriptions that surprised and charmed me–the first one of a house and the second one of a person, the first one because of the disparate things in the list and the second one because of its wordplay.
Hanna loved the little house at Boolavaun: four rooms, a porch full of geraniums, a mountain out the back and, out the front, a sky full of weather.
And Hanna loved her Granny Madigan, a woman who looked like she had a lot to say, and wasn’t saying any of it.
