the last book I ever read (Vendela Vida's We Run the Tides, excerpt three)

from We Run the Tides: A Novel by Vendela Vida:

Friday is officially hot—San Francisco’s summer has finally arrived in the fall. My mother gets off early from work and bikes home and washes and styles her hair and paints her nails. She dresses in all white and I have to admit she looks glamorous, and my father says so, too. “Wow,” he says when she comes downstairs. He stands at a distance, appraising her like art.
