the last book I ever read (Stella Maris by Cormac McCarthy, excerpt six)

from Stella Maris by Cormac McCarthy:

I brought a lighter but I didnt think about an ashtray.

I can use the glass.

All right. Did your parents fight?

No. Toward the end he wasnt around all that much. He spent a lot of time in the South Pacific blowing things up.

That sounds pretty much a criticism.

It’s not a criticism. Boys like blowing things up.
