. "Raymond sat at one end of the table bent over the Holt Mercury newspaper spread out before him, reading, licking his fingers when he turned the pages, his wire glasses low down on his nose. While he read he rolled a toothpick back and forth in his mouth without once touching it."
-- Plainsong by Kent Haruf.
Haruf can really capture a character in a couple of sentences. Great book. Quiet, but very good.
