the last book I ever read (Cal: A Novel by Bernard MacLeverty, excerpt seven)

from Cal: A Novel by Bernard MacLeverty:

‘Did you ever read any of the books I gave you?’

‘No, but I started one. I wasn’t enjoying it so I stopped.’ He felt he was hurting her by satying i.

‘That’s fair enough. Which one?’ Cal tried to recall. He felt a flutter of examination nerves and said,

‘It was something about a deaf-mute bloke in America.’

‘Carson McCullers?’

‘Aye, him, I think.’

‘Her. And you didn’t like it?’

‘It was odd. Maybe I’ll try again.’
