Elizabeth Strout

Elizabeth Strout, the Pulitzer Prize winning novelist, was recently quoted in Time Magazine: “Inside every person is a universe, and we’ll never know what it feels like to be another person. Which is horrifying.” I can agree with the first sentence but it does not seem so horrifying. In fact, the reverse is more likely. Would it not be more horrifying to fully experience another person’s universe? At the very least, it would surely be a tedious process. But what do I know? I am not the one with the Pulitzer. The year she won that prize, I finished 39th in the voting. I am forwarding Elizabeth the link to my Blog because it comes very close to exposing the universe inside of me. And I do expect she will be horrified.
