“Did you see more glass?”

My favorites.

I was gifted this copy of Nine Stories by my friend Allison as I went off to art school. I kept the note on the title page. It’s been well loved and well read: wrinkled binding, curled pages, underlined passages, notes in the margins.

A Perfect Day for Bananafish and For Esmé – with Love and Squalor have kept me company on many late nights, early mornings, and languid afternoons.
