A Person Gets Tired

depressed-girl-clipart-clipart-panda-free-clipart-images-DiFf4T-clipart    A quote from Elizabeth Strout’s My Name is Lucy Barton, nominated for the Man Booker Prize this year:

“A person gets tired. The mind or the soul or whatever word we have for what-ever is not just the body gets tired, and this, I have decided, is – usually, mostly – nature helping us. I was getting tired.  I think  – but I don’t know – that he was getting tired too.”

  1. I am truly shocked that this was nominated for the Man Booker. I really was not impressed – especially knowing that the same author wrote Olive Kitteridge – no comparison!
