Gosh, I  think it would be difficult to find a book of any genre that
portrays domestic love more eloquently than LITTLE, BIG. Sure Smoky strays
with Sophie, but can anyone doubt his long-term devotion to Daily Alice? And
as for short-term romantic obsession, well, holy Toledo, who in the hell
beats Rush with Once a Day, Auberon with Sylvie, Pierce with Rose, even,
more diffidently Spofford with Rosie? Mantis, you are having a frigid
winter-chill indeed. Watch an episode of The Simpsons, with Homer and Marge,
for heavens' sake.
