January 23, 2007: Greene on Small Talk - 1 Comments

"Father Crompton was not used to dining out. One had the impression that this was a duty on which he found it hard to keep his mind. He had very limited small talk, and his answers fell like trees across the road."
- Greene, The End of the Affair, 1951.

For the record, I think The End of the Affair is the most heartbreakingly sad (and romantic) book I've ever read. Seriously.
