From Denis Johnson’s Already Dead:

“…[she] had given him the Emerson book. He’d been fascinated with her when they met, because she read such things and seemed to live in two worlds at once—the world of her life, and the world of books in which she found her life explained. Eventually the two worlds came together somewhere inside of her and made for tremendous strength when it came to making large decisions, as, for instance, the decision to turn her back on her husband.”
