Quote of the Day (Saul Bellow, on Hot New York Nights)

“On some nights New York is as hot as Bangkok. The whole continent seems to have moved from its place and slid nearer the equator, the bitter gray Atlantic to have become green and tropical, and the people, thronging the streets, barbaric fellahin among the stupendous monuments of their mystery, the lights of which, a dazing profusion, climb upward endlessly into the heat of the sky."—American novelist and Nobel Literature laureate Saul Bellow (1915-2005), The Victim (1947)
