Notable Quotable #25

Christina turns and decides to go alone when a voice that seems to be using barbed wire and poisonous snakes for vocal cords speaks up…The shape shifts and twists, a head rising from the amorphous rags. Its hair (that which there is) sticks straight up or hangs in grease-shellacked hunks. Both eyes are milky, but they focus on Cass. The skin is brown, wrinkled, and desiccated like a crack-addicted walnut…The face pauses and the rags shift, evoking an image of a large bird caught in an oil spill that is trying to ruffle its feathers.
