    Summary

    Had Dionysus taken a look at him he would have asked him to be his cupbearer for an eternity. Neither Ganymede nor Aphrodite held a candle to Francis. For a second, all I could do was stare. His nose was narrow, freckles peppering the bridge and part of his cheeks, his lips were thin but soft and expressive, teeth a little crooked, skin a pale and milky white that stained beautifully with even the lightest touch, he was slender, taller than I was but that never bothered me and he had scars on his wrists that he hid with long sleeves even during the summer. I fell in love with him ten times over at that moment.

    Summary

    A fifty-year-old Richard Papen finds himself completely numb to his surroundings as he goes through the motions in life, living back in Plano, California by himself. Even after all those years had passed him by, he feels as though he is being haunted by remnants of the past as he begins to see glimpses of his old Hampden friends in crowds and mirrors, which convinces him that he's gone completely mad.
    On a business trip, he meets Judy Poovey by accident and the two of them catch up with each other, sending Richard into some sort of breakdown related to his 'haunting' episodes.
    Richard takes the week off work and flies to Boston where some unexpected events occur, causing him to question his reality and his very own life.

    Summary

    "You would let me kill you," Henry says, not a question, not a statement, but an order.

    Summary

    под тенью плодоносящего винограда федя кажется мне вечным, как старик, неразлучный с морем, как терновый венок, не снятый с головы христа. вечность вытекает из его запястий и струится в землю. вечностью выдыхает сладко-жгучий воздух августовского полдня.

    вечность.

    Summary

    - Not really.. it's late.. very dark out.. I can't remember where I parked my car."
    Francis said, glancing upwards.
    Richard laughed, the sound followed by a slight wheeze.
    "And you called me an idiot?"
    He looks at Francis, who's still standing quietly at the foot of his bed.
    "I'd like you to stay."

    ((This is set after Richard almost died of hypothermia in that warehouse type place))
