But then I got up to twelve and even fifteen bricks, and this delighted me. When
you're in prison, physical strength is no less necessary than moral strength if you'
re going to endure all the material discomforts of this accursed life. And I wanted
to go on living even after I got out of prison. . . . I liked to carry bricks, however, not
only because this work strengthened my body but also because the work was
carried out on the shore of the Irtysh. I speak of this shore so often because it was

Jerry must have thought better of it and his boat was pulled up on the shore on
the other side ofthe landing. The wind had spun our boat around and The Bass
Queen was struggling to hold onto it. Jerry was standing next to her on the dock
and they both were pulling on the bow line. I quickly backed the trailer into the
water and jumped out of the van, running up on the dock. I jumped into the boat
and was quickly trying to start the motor. It finally caught and I threw the throttle
into ...

“No,” Dahlia said. “I'll just have the soup.” That night, Dahlia dreamed of a beach
replete with shiny glass pebbles. “These used to be shards from broken bottles,”
a phantom stranger said. The waves crash against the shore and wear down the
sharp edges. “That's the opposite of what happens with people,” Dahlia said. “
The sea is just the night, watered down,” said the phantom. “You were talking in
your sleep,” Prakash told Dahlia. “Maybe I'm still asleep,” she said, and pinched

In winter, it is easy for the most nasally challenged human busybody to tell who is
in residence and what they have been up to. One only needs to read the latest
trails and droppings. Take this morning, for instance. It dawned clear, bright, and
windless, as if the curtain of night had been pulled away to reveal a sparkling

hot summer day at the shore. I geared up in my lightest parka, hat, and gloves,
put on ...

I see a couple of speed boats parked up to the shore. I don't see anyone until a
man walks out from behind the boats to wave me in. I hold back about twenty feet
from the shoreline, as something isn't right, there is one guy, and two boats. I put

waving me to shore in the head. I guess he may have been the one I was
supposed to ...

The opening notes to Jarrett's “The Cure,” the first brushstrokes of Edvard
Munch's Death in the Sickroom or the first sentences of Fritz Zorn's Mars (1976)
— “I'm young and rich and educated, and I'm unhappy, neurotic, and alone. I
come from one of the very best families on the east shore of Lake Zurich, the
shore that people call the Goldcoast. My upbringing has been middleclass, and I
have been a model of good behaviour all my life. My family is somewhat
degenerate, ...
