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

from Cal: A Novel by Bernard MacLeverty:

In the bathroom Cal trimmed round his black beard with Dermot’s razor. It was probably the first time in weeks he had seen a mirror and he was surprised at himself. He thought the beard suited him. People had always said that he was a good-looking boy and now, seeing himself, he could almost believe them. He must take after his mother because Shamie was no oil painting.
