"At Cuccio's Bakery we see a seven-layer chocolate cake with a cherry on top."
Then there is a full color drawing of that seven-layer cake. And underneath, it says:
" A seven-layer chocolate cake with a cherry on top!!"
This is one page of a day she spent on the subway getting off at random stops and seeing what was around her.
Not all of her musings are mundane. She talks a lot about existential things like why do we live and why do we die. I think these are the parts of the book I enjoyed the most.
My brother is a professor at BYU - and he is teaching this book in one of his classes. I think my brother sees more in this book than I do, which is why I thought I'd let you know he is teaching it.
If you have the slightest inclination to read the book, I'd say do it. You can read it in under an hour - and who doesn't have time to read a book that takes less than an hour?
