A Strange Life


“Oh, darling,” she said. “You will be good to me, won’t you?”

What the hell, I thought. I stroked her hair and patted her shoulder. She was crying.

“You will, won’t you?” She looked up at me. “Because we’re going to have a strange life.”

– Catherine Barkley from A Farewell to Arms

    I have had a decided lack of Hemingway in my life for the past twenty years. As such my NYR is to read one book by the old man during each month in 2014. I’m beginning with A Farewell to Arms, obviously.
