The Photos

- Frey writes in a stream of consciousness that my father refers to as the way I write, like Virginia Woolf. I have read only one of her books, one put out in Penguin’s celebratory collection, to celebrate seventy years of paperbacks and as I read it I thought how I loved the flow and hoped that one day somebody else may honour me with such a comparison. Some days I find it difficult to be mindful, to step back and see in front of me, must minimise the use of “but”, which goes back to 1994 when I loved the Argentine girl, who claimed I could not write a sentence without but....   [tags: Descriptive Essay Examples]
