I just listened to Antonya Nelson reading Mavis Gallant's short story, "When We Were Nearly Young", again.
A perfect match.
It's just so damn good. Sometimes I crave the recording and play it just to fill me up with, I'm not sure what. Quality, I guess. Nelson's voice paired with Gallant's story as fuel, inspiration to push myself further.
