Quote of the Day (Anne Tyler, on a Middle-Aged Eccentric)

“You could say he was a man who had gone to pieces, or maybe he'd arrived unassembled. Various parts of him seemed poorly joined together. His lean, hairy limbs were connected by exaggerated knobs of bone; his black bearded jaw was as clumsily hinged as a nutcracker. Parts of his life, too, lay separate from other parts. His wife knew almost none of his friends. His children had never seen where he worked.”—Pulitzer Prize-winning American novelist Anne Tyler, Morgan’s Passing (1980)
