  • Getting defensive around Nina was like cutting yourself while shaving in a shark tank.

  • Law would never make her heart pound or her spirit soar. Nina had known that from the first day of law school when her attention wandered off during a contracts class and had yet to return.

  • ... women who seemed capable of only limited mental tasks in most situations could retain information regarding other people's weight for years, sometimes decades. Unlike genuine idiots savants, they couldn't tell you that December 13, 1972, had fallen on a Wednesday. But they could often tell you, within a pound or two, how much you'd weighed that week.

  • ... her own tiny one-bedroom. So tiny that when she neglected to hang up her terry cloth bathrobe, Nina felt as though another person had moved in.

  • The place looked like the kind of bar that Nina usually tried to avoid. There were a couple of hard-core alkies attached to their stools and a bartender that looked like he had peaked in his junior year of high school.
