Today’s quotes comes from Arthur Phillips’ The Song is You.
(If you have no idea what this segement is about, read this post.)
“The shadow of a snout moved at the gap between floor and door, side to side, frenetic clicking claws and snuffling, a Great Danish border inspection, still undecided between hostility and welcome.”
“She called Ian and was only mildly surprised to see the mysterious visiting cell phone suffer a little epileptic fit on her table.”
“The pilot… was younger than Julian by nearly a whole grown-up.”
Why do I like them?
They’re so creative. In each instance, Phillips takes an everyday situation and frames it in a fresh and comical way. Although I wasn’t fussed on the themes of this book, I loved its quirkiness.
What do you think of these snippets? Like them? Hate them? Indifferent?
