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 . . .
