    Summary

    “There is barely a ribbon or a feather or a scrap of silk left this side of Exeter.”

    “No woman under thirty is left unmoved,” Tom said, grinning around the stem of his pipe.

    “Even our Essie is taken up with the idea!” Esther’s dark eyes were dancing in the firelight. “Though she is far too young to think of marrying at present — least of all to Mr James Fitzjames.”

    Summary

    The day you get the most important email of your life, there’s a new black skidmark on the wall of the stairwell, and you know exactly whose fault it is.
    “Margaret,” you intone to the harried, wild-haired woman in the lobby.
    She sighs at you as she tries to jimmy her mail key loose. “I know.”
    It wouldn’t even be that bad if the kid would just skateboard outside. Or get good at skateboarding. Either of those things. Maggie’s a nice lady, though, and she’s had “trying my best” scribbled all over her since they moved into 6B maybe eight years ago. So you try not to be a dick, even if her son is a gold-standard pain in the ass. He’s good for three things: smells, noise, and reminding you how big Eddie must be by now.

    Summary

    John took him to the gardens at sunrise. They bundled up in quilts and drank coffee and sat on the stone walls, and John said, “Next week, eight years ago, you save my life at the National Opera House in Ukraine.”

    Summary

    “Yusuf ibn Ibrahim ibn Muhammad ibn al-Kaysani, called al-Tayyib,” Yusuf said, pointing at himself. He had to repeat himself several times before the man frowned and glanced up at his face.

    “Yusuf,” the man said, pointing at him. He had to try a few times to get the intonation right, after which he carefully attempted the rest of Yusuf’s name, if with less success. It surprised Yusuf that he bothered, given what they’d been doing to each other. The man pointed back at his pale, gaunt face. “Nicolò di Genova.”
