Barbara Pym: Civil to Strangers

Cassandra started from her pleasant day-dreams and realized that she was the old lady.

To have money and leisure to sit in a lovely garden, enjoying the sunshine and doing […]

Evelyn Waugh: Brideshead Revisited | Klassikkohaaste 12

My theme is memory, that winged host that soared about me one grey morning of wartime. These memories, which are my life—for we possess nothing certainly except the past—were always with me. Like the pigeons of St. Mark’s, they were everywhere, under my feet, singly, in pairs, in little honey-voiced congregations, nodding, strutting, winking, rolling […]

The pizza arrived startlingly fast, seared with black from the wood fired oven. It smelled so good, Noah somewhat regretted ordering the fish.Michael glowered. ”I knew there’d be goddamn margherita.””Those are just basil leaves, for a garnish.” Noah lifted one off with his fork.”I don’t eat fucking garnish.” Michael gouged them out and flicked them […]
