Great Moments in Literature

“While he was watching, Polly walked the length of the porch and bent over to scrape something out of a bucket — lye soap, it looked like. She was a pretty woman, light of step; he had always fancied women who were light of step. The sight of her made him all the more anxious to get the gunplay over with, so he could take her on home.”

–Larry McMurtry and Diana Ossana, Zeke and Ned, 1997

 

“DAWN CREEPS OVER MANHATTAN, PAINTING AVENGERS MANSION IN BLOODY HUES.  INSIDE, STRIDING PURPOSEFULLY DOWN A PLUSH-CARPETED HALL IS A LONE FIGURE…A QUIET, DIGNIFIED MAN, A BUTLER, CALLED SIMPLY JARVIS. ON HIS TRAY, HE CARRIES A GLASS OF MILK — BREAKFAST FOR THE ONLY CURRENT RESIDENT AVENGER. HE IS UNAWARE THAT HE IS BEING STALKED — UNTIL IT IS FAR TOO LATE!”

–Jim Shooter, AVENGERS, Vol. 1, No. 212, “Men of Deadly Pride!” 1981
