Phillip Lopate Quotes

If something peculiar happens to me at the grocery store or the dry cleaners, I already start shaping it into a narrative the moment Im out the door, and I bring it home to my wife the way a cat presents a captured mouse to its master. If my wife has news of her own she wants to tell first, I am very put out, though I try to hide it, because here is this gift of an anecdote nicely shaped, dripping from my mouth."
