So I thought I’d re-read the whole of Solace before beginning this discussion thread, and then I got about forty pages in and realized I knew every sentence. I have memorized that book, essentially. It happened the way many things happen to me: I wrote every sentence over and over, perfecting each one (or so I hoped at the time), out of a combination of compulsiveness, panic, and perfectionism. The Death Trifecta. That said, if you bring up a particular point, rather than a general observation, please include the chapter or page number so I can look back at it.
As always, be kind to each other and patient with a variety of readings. You’re all superlatively good people, but we can never hear it too often.
