the last book I ever read (Early Work: A Novel by Andrew Martin, excerpt eight)

from Early Work: A Novel by Andrew Martin:

He looked at Leslie like a child up past his bedtime, as I’d hoped he would. I actually did want to watch the game, but I also wanted to delay, and possibly prevent, him from having a good night with Leslie. I was willing to put myself in the way of his company in order to take her out of it. Sacrifice: it’s what Americans think love is.
