Looks like Donna Tartt does what the rest of us do. Or was her copyeditor just having a mental ellipsis?
By the way, how much did you LOVE The Secret History? Am talking Donna Tartt here, not the equally riveting Procopius. And if you haven’t read it yet, why not?? Perhaps it was just because I was studying Classics at the time and chose to be entranced by the concept of conversing in Greek rather than deeply threatened. Best crime novel ever. According to me.
‘,’ was what all my friends said about it. High praise.
