Okay I'm doing a teaser from one of the new books I bought, in my second round of new book buying (sold 2 dvd box sets, got 25$ bought 6 books for 25$). Anyways, this one is from Silk, by Alessandro Baricco on page 43.
"They returned to the town in the strange light of an afternoon that seemed evening. Arriving at the house of Herve Joncour, they said good bye"
Note for your information, the other 5 books I got from the used bookstore were : Great Expectations, Cat's Eye, Poionswood Bible, Further Under the Duvet and Dark of the Sun.
