"Bruno, my old faithful.  I haven't sufficiently described him.  Is it enough to say he is indescribable?  No.  Better to try and fail than not to try at all.  That soft down of your white hair lightly playing about your scalp like a half-blown dandelion.  Many times, Bruno, I have been tempted to blow on your head and make a wish.  Only a last scrap of decorum keeps me from it."

The History of Love, Nicole Krauss
