I’m reading Eleanor Rigby by Douglas Coupland right now, and I’m really enjoying his writing style. It’s straightforward, to the point, no excess flowery language or whatever. But he manages to state some very truthful things in an understated way, like this quotation illustrates:

"We crave them [family members] and need them not because we have so many shared experiences to talk about but because they know precisely which subjects to avoid." (p. 61, Bloomsbury Publishing, 2004).

I really want to finish the book and see what other things speak to my soul in that way. It’s too bad I have to focus on my Jewish history midterm until Thursday..
