I not only enjoyed the image very much, but also got curious about the story and found it here: http://www.newyorker.com/fiction/features/2010/04/26/100426fi_fiction_doctorow?currentPage=all
Highly recommended!

A nice essay on lines and angles

Martina said...

Thanks to all :-)

Markus, funnily yesterday I started posting links if the thing I am reading is online available. Don't ask me why I did not do this before ... :-S And yes, it is a lasting story (still searching for the right translation of "nachhaltig, nachwirkend")

paulboo, if you do this, sooner or later you would have to cross the Main river (the church is on the other side).

Very nice. I like this one a lot.

Martina said...

David, haha, this was the day I tried taking corkboard-y photos ;-)

ER, you know what? I never have read any Doctorow before - after reading this I put "Ragtime" on my wishlist - anything you would recommend?
