Snow Falling On Cedars – David Guterson

  • “”He loved humankind dearly and with all his heart, but he disliked most human beings,” she’d told Ishmael. “You’re the same, you know. You’re your father’s son.””
  • “San Piedro men learned to be silent. Occasionally, though, and with enormous relief, they comunicated with one another on the docks at dawn. Though tired and still busy, they spoke from deck to deck of what had happened during the night and of things only they could understand. The intimacy of it, the comfort of other voices giving credence to their private myths, prepared to meet their wives with less distance than they might otherwise bring home after fishing. In short, they were lonely men and products of geography – island men who on ocasion recognized that they wished to speak but couldn’t.”
