I've been memed! Here's the challenge, from Tracy over at Beyond My Picket Fence:
Grab the book nearest you, turn to page 56 and go to the fifth sentence, typing that sentence and a few others around it.
The book closest to me is Objects of Grace: Conversations on Creativity and Faith by James Romaine. Here's what we find on page 56:
"I witnessed the effect of absent parents on the lives of many of my college students. In Lord of the Flies, Golding seems to be reacting to Romanticism by showing our tendency to sin even in a pristine natural environment. I placed the boys in a perfectly controlled man-made garden to suggest that even if man were to have the absolute dominion he desires, the results would be the same."
This is from an interview with the painter Mary McCleary.
Now I'm supposed to meme a few unsuspecting victims of my own. Okay, then, Heather, Dulce and Angela, you're up!
