Sunday Sentence: Dodsworth by Sinclair Lewis

Simply put, the best sentence(s) I’ve read this past week, presented out of context and without commentary.

If she was an angel, the girl at whom Sam was pointing, she was an angel of ice; slim, shining, ash-blonde, her self-possessed voice very cool as she parried the complimentary teasing of half a dozen admirers; a crystal candle-stick of a girl among black-and-white lumps of males.

Dodsworth by Sinclair Lewis


  1. Such wonderfully put into words, Sinclair Lewis, simply put is an amazing author, this is a good read thank you for sharing! I'll come back for more!

  2. This was an incredible read. I loved watching 2 people evolve without understanding how they got there. Finally Sam takes hold of his own life and saves himself through late blooming awareness and separation from Fran who was slowly strangling him.
