My current read is The Poet of Tolstoy Park by Sonny Brewer.
Just ran across a good quote, something Henry thought.
"Sometimes the considerate pause before a word, Henry thought, was as important as the word itself."
Is he right or what?! You can hear so much in that pause when you are conversing with other people, and it reminds me that I should probably "pause" a lot more often with my words during conversation.
