Aretha & Barry

In book group, reading on October 16, 2011 at 12:26 am

‎”If you think of the world without people it’s about the most perfect thing there ever is. It’s all balanced and s%#t. But then come the people, and they #@$% it up. It’s like you got Aretha Franklin in your bedroom and she’s just giving it her all, she’s singing just for you, she’s on fire … and then all of a sudden out pops Barry Manilow from behind the curtains.”

— Colum McCann, Let the Great World Spin (August book group pick)
