Quote of the Day (Colin Barrett, on a Would-Be Poet)

"Bobby Tallis possessed the drainpipe physique, knee-length mackintosh, and balefully frail demeanour of a poet, or so he believed...as he pursued a lavishly wayward course...One hand broodingly ensconced within a pocket, Bobby smoked as he walked."—Irish fiction writer Colin Barrett, “Anhedonia, Here I Come,” originally printed in The New Yorker, April 18, 2016, then reprinted in Homesickness (2022)
