Missing Larry Brown

I so looked forward to reading the next book  Larry Brown would write; he left us too soon.

Copied from On Fire:

“Fear.  The fine line you walk where what you have to do drives you to do it up against what your better judgment tells you not to.  A firefighter cannot be a coward.   He can be a lot of things, a prick, a thief, a liar, but he cannot be a coward and he probably will not be a child molester, although I’d bet somebody a million dollars there is at least one child molester somewhere in the fire service.  A man who won’t tote his own weight, who won’t hump his own hose, won’t be tolerated.”

Larry Brown’s  novel Father and Son broke my heart.  To think that I will never read another line of his writing . . .
