The Country of Ice Cream Star

I’m still reading my friend’s book, The Country of Ice Cream Star. It’s going to take me a while because of work on my own book, but it’s just blowing me away. I recently read this line in the book:

“The worst thing about a war, senyora, is that it produces war heroes.”

Aside from the death, yeah. And actually, maybe it is worse than death because making war heroes leads to even more death.

Crowds at the America’s Cup. We do love a hero, don’t we? We make them all over the place.
