Sunday Sentence

Thanks to Erika Dreifus, I've become aware of David Abrams’s “Sunday Sentence” project (#SundaySentence on Twitter), which asks others to share the best sentence(s) they’ve read during the past week, “out of context and without commentary.” So, here is mine for this week:

"The individual slabs of the steps are as worn as old bars of soap..."

From Peter LaSalle's essay "Au Train de Vie" in the Summer 2013 issue of the Missouri Review

    1. William, I loved it because it really captures what those kinds of stairs in Paris look like, the slabs are rather flat and often sagging from age, so that soap bar simile is just genius.
