Gosh, it's always such a joy to dig into a James Lee Burke book, isn't it? Today's quote is from his upcoming (and wonderful) House of the Rising Sun:
"The screams of the children and the women were like sounds one hears inside the wind. Or in a dream. Or in a burning building about to collapse. Or in a universe where you helped dim the stars and murder the voices of charity and pity that should have defined your soul."
–James Lee Burke, House of the Rising Sun
