“And it's a life with no shortage of moments to recommend it, a life that picks up speed like a boulder rolling down a hill, easy and natural and comfortable, and yet beyond control somehow; it all happens so fast, you wake a young man and at lunch are middle-aged and by dinner you can imagine your death.”

by Jess Walter (My mother's favorite book she's read this year.)
I read so many books and enjoy almost every one. But this one was really special. I thought about it long after finishing it.
