Books That Make Me Go.....Ahhhh

Once a week I am going to post a notable excerpt from either a book I am currently reading or have read in the past.  These gems that catch my eye deserve much more notoriety besides being written down on a little sticky note in the front of the novel.

This week my notable excerpt is from The World Without You by Joshua Henkin:
Because she didn't- she doesn't- want to be beholden to her, and because she didn't wish to pretend she's doing anything but dabbling.  She hates being terrible at something she was once so good at.  Not that she's terrible, really, not by most lights, but by her own lights, by the lights of what she once was, she is terrible and it pains her.

I haven't read this one yet but I enjoyed Matrimony. He's coming to LA next week. If I can get to the event, I will buy his book then and have him sign it.
