the last book I ever read (Mr. and Mrs. Doctor by Julie Iromuanya, excerpt three)

from Mr. and Mrs. Doctor by Julie Iromuanya:

In the gas station, he stalked back and forth between the aisles, his back straight, an important man making a decision, letting his fingers rest on bags of potato chips that he knew he’d never had a taste for. He stopped only after the clerk, a boy in dark frames, sent him a sidelong glance.

“You got gas on two?” the clerk asked.

“Yeah,” Job said, in his best imitation of an American.
