Utdraget är en beskrivning av Catherines "bästa vän" som jag valde för att den var så härligt osmickrande:
Margaret had the great hardship of being unbearably unattractive. Not the homely-caterpillar-waiting-to-turn-into-a-beautiful-butterfly sort of unattractive, but the sort of unattractive that gave those around her a sense of hopelessness. She had a sharp chin, tiny eyes spaced too close together and overshadowed by an overhanging brow, and broad, inelegant shoulders that were made more prominent by her ill-fitting clothes. If it weren't for the gowns she wore, Margaret would have been frequently mistaken for a boy.
An unattractive one.
Fler smakbitar serveras hos Mari. Ha en trevlig söndag!
