"A little too much anger, too often or at the wrong time, can destroy more than you would ever imagine. Above all, mind what you say."
-- Marilynne Robinson, Gilead
How I love all the novels of Marilynne Robinson. Housekeeping, so brilliant. I just read Lila for the first time, which made me want to re-read Gilead. It is a rare kind of book: a novel told from the perspective of a deeply good person. A beautiful, beautiful book.
