Tree of Smoke
I’ve just finished reading a book.
One line—”Now James felt as if his head had been chopped off and thrown in boiling water.”—made me burst out laughing.
Another two—”Courage is action. Thought is cowardice.”—made me burst into tears.
There is much more in this book than these few lines.
And a hopeful broken-heartedness about the whole thing.
