Reading today: Michael Amnasan's Beyond the Safety of Dreams (Krupskya, 2000). I have the vague impression that a lot of new memoirs are coming down the pike. This is one place it started early. Here's a passage I like because of the counter-intuitive reversals at the end or in the middle of each sentence:
Finding the right person the right combination of strengths, weaknesses, aspirations, a match that will help us forget the pain of mortality, is what people who are afraid of the cruelty of difference will insist upon. The universe is vast and magnificent and does not care about us, and that's where I want to live, not in a world of lazy goodness in which adopting common limitations is a gift to others, peace on earth.
