the last book I ever read (Rebecca Makkai's The Great Believers, excerpt seven)

from National Book Award Finalist The Great Believers by Rebecca Makkai:

Arnaud said, “Ah, okay, hello! Yes! Your phone was dead all day! But I have double good news. She’s ready to meet with you.”

“She’s—what? Who, Claire?”

“Ha. I’m good, right? Fast. She’s here in the city. Well, she lives in Saint-Denis, not a very nice suburb. But she works at a bar-tabac in the eighteenth.”

Fiona found herself leaning against the wall.
