Henderson is precisely the opposite. When we overhear her doing word problems with her mother, she's learning how to calculate which boy has more money than the other. You can almost hear the director's Bronx-accented voice: He launched into a story about some legal gentleman who had got into deep waters owing to the conduct of his wife.
I laid the pencil down again. Two warders marched on either side of the prisoner, with their rifles at the slope; two others marched close against him, gripping him by arm and shoulder, as though at once pushing and supporting him.
Remarkable pacing is a vital element because if the book flips back and forth through time or moves too slowly or too quickly, it will not make sense.
Sheets and pyjamas crumble and dissolve in their hands, because, though they do not state this in so many words, it seems silly to take the washing round to Mrs.
I bend my legs on the floor of the pool and I jump. He flashes his credentials and hands out fifty- and hundred-dollar bills to charm, bribe, or intimidate cabbies, clerks, receptionists, and hookers--all members of the vast, compliant service economy on whom the enormous disparities of wealth in America are founded.
One felt an impulse to sing, to break into a run, to snigger. The ride is over, and you hastily wobble off, catching your breath, to the next astonishing ride. The opening credits for Alien are nothing short of a typographic masterpiece.
The gestation period is days and the size of the litter may be anywhere between cubs. Sheffield, I suppose, could justly claim to be called the ugliest town in the Old World: They lie close to those shop windows where commerce offers to a world of old women laid on doorsteps, of blind men, of hobbling dwarfs, sofas which are supported by the gilt necks of proud swans; tables inlaid with baskets of many coloured fruit; sideboards paved with green marble the better to support the weight of boars' heads; and carpets so softened with age that their carnations have almost vanished in a pale green sea.
