Carol Hougan

  • ... Sisyphus flashed his smile — oddly artificial, as if he'd learned it by observation.

  • 'You look so serious.' The bartender set down her drink in front of her. 'Oh. Just thinking ...' He leaned across the bar and shook his head. 'You don't want to do too much of that.' He began dipping beer glasses in the sink and shaking them out. 'Dangerous. Highly addictive, you know. First you start out with a simple thought or two. Next thing you know, you're having ideas. I see it all the time, in my line of work.'

  • It was as if all the love there was had been there in the beginning and had been gradually withdrawn over the years, like a savings accounts, and the balance was now at zero.
