    The crowd murmured and shifted. Drew Summers turned, meeting the gaze of one person, and then the next. Makepeace Royse, a giant of a man in plain dress, called out, “For I will at this time send all my plagues upon thine heart, and upon thy servants, and upon thy people; that thou mayest know that there is none like me in all the earth. Exodus, 9:14.”

    “Lottery in June, corn be heavy soon,” called out David Hutchinson.

    “Hell is empty,” shouted out Widow Dellacroix. “All the devils are here.”

    Summary

    “Nell, do you hear it? Are you awake?”

    I am not awake, Eleanor told herself, I am asleep and I will stay asleep, for attention, because Theodora knows all about the things which people do in order to receive attention; I will lie here quietly and calmly and she may cry and be afraid alone tonight. “I am awake,” Eleanor said. “What do you hear?”

    (It seemed to Eleanor that it was not a symptom of disease to be precisely and unapologetically what one was: a house, or otherwise.)

    In the darkness she seemed to enter Eleanor’s bed in fragments: first her voice, and then Eleanor felt the movements of her sheets and knew it was Theodora who moved them; then her legs were below the sheets with Eleanor’s legs, slipping and pushing around as she found the patch of heat which Eleanor’s body had made for Eleanor and was now being taken away from her by Theodora; and then her hair, which swung across Eleanor’s face and neck as Theodora laid herself down beside her; and then lastly her breath, which came burningly from her mouth in their cold dark room: and then all of Theodora lay with Eleanor in Eleanor’s bed and her head on Eleanor’s pillow, and she turned her face towards Eleanor’s in the darkness.

    Summary

    "I was leaving Bertrand," Léa said finally. "When you found me I’d already packed up my suitcases, taken the money from the safe… I was going to take Simon with me and leave Villefranche in the dust."

    "And yet," Laurène commented mildly, "you’re both still here."

    beautiful, disturbing, mundane and spooky and sad, just like the show.

    Sue Snell, survivor.

    I'm watching Carrie and Tommy sit together at the dance. She looks happier than I've ever seen her, glowing and pretty; Tommy in his white dinner jacket is heart-breakingly elegant, a preview of an adult self he'll never inhabit. His parents buried him in that jacket. I think.
