...and just wanted to pause to share this bit, which I love:
But if renting all those movies had taught me anything more than how to lose myself in them, it was that you only actually have perfectly profound little moments like that in real life if you recognize them yourself, do all the fancy shot work and editing in your head, usually in the very seconds that whatever is happening is happening. And even if you do manage to do so, just about never does anyone else you're with at the time experience that exact same kind of moment, and it's impossible to explain it as it's happening, and then the moment is over.
I'm soooooo relieved that the incoming freshmen of Cape Henlopen, Delaware are being protected from the profane hideousness that is this book.
