my antonia

"...sunflower-bordered roads always seem to me the roads to freedom."
-Willa Cather

Before Lolita there was My Antonia, the perfect American novel by the perfect American writer.... I just pulled out my copy and read all the numerous passages that I'd underlined years ago. Here's a short one: "Some memories are realities, and are better than anything that can ever happen to one again." Cather brings tears to my eyes like no other artist.
