THE INNOCENTS by georges simenon


picked off the library shelf in passing. just like that. hardcover, no description, just the title. which was enough, and turned out true.

little breadbites of prose to take you through twenty years of a couple’s life. fast and flickering like the proverbial dream before death. quick, perfect scenes. beautifully sentimental and bittersweet. a few overly determining plot points, despite being lynchpins of the story, really don’t get in the way. best to just gently sidestep them as they come barreling by. then it becomes a keeper.

pick it up from your local library.
