Thought for the Day

December 2, 2010

We can never know what to want,

Because, living only one life,

We can neither compare it with our previous lives,

Nor perfect it in our lives to come.

      –   Milan Kundera, ‘The Unbearable Lightness of Being’

This is the quote that big Ray* chooses to open ‘Where I’m Calling From’, the anthology of his short stories.

If you haven’t already read both ‘Where I’m Calling From’ and ‘The Unbearable Lightness of Being’, point that special person in your life in the direction of Waterstone’s this Christmas.


* Raymond Carver, of course (but then you already knew that)
