“We cross our bridges when we come to them and burn them behind us, with nothing to show for our progress except a memory of the smell of smoke, and a presumption that once our eyes watered.” #Bridge #QuotsyAug19
Has anyone read The Story of Edgar Sawtelle by David Wroblewski? I picked the hardback up at my local used bookstore because it looked interesting. It was only twenty-five cents, so it was either a great deal or a book no one wanted! 😜 No spoilers, please!
I‘m starting this book again for the third time this summer—ironically because, Ruby, my puppy won‘t let me read. Ironic because the book is set in a world of a fictional breed of dog. She‘s not content to be on the floor beside me, or even in my lap. She has to be in my face, kissing me. Now she‘s barking at me through a glass door. Third time‘s the charm. Here we go!
This is a very popular play written in the 1960s. From Shmoop: “The play cleverly re-interprets Shakespeare's Hamlet from the point of view of two minor characters: Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. The Laurel-and-Hardy-like pair are totally incidental to the action of Hamlet, subject to the whims of the King Claudius – who gets them to betray Hamlet – and then tricked by Hamlet into delivering a letter that condemns them to death.”
