'Good heavens, poor Leon...our poor friend...good heavens...good heavens...he's dead!'
Tears appeared in her eyes, those silent tears of women, drops of grief from the soul that roll down their cheeks and seem so sorrowful, being so clear.
p. 35 of Pierre and Jean and Selected Short Stories by Guy de Maupassant, translated by Lowell Bair


  1. sad Teaser, sounds like he will be missed. however that book cover from this teaser does not catch my attention. happy reading.

    1. haha--the actual copy I have, doesn't look like the one I have up, but I couldn't find it anywhere. I can't say its anymore interesting though. I only got it for one short story, but figured I'd read them all.

      Thanks for visiting!
