Working Title: She Cried
1st Sentence: She cried before the first line was out because when he sang his voice was not the voice she knew, brash and elastic, making chords out of truth and confusion and anger.
Favorite Sentence: She cried because he opened with his famous anti-war song and when he was done he shook his head and said he’d felt dumb for writing that song, because, he’d believed then, it was a song that wouldn’t hold up, that powerful men punching you in the face with the American flag would be an embarrassing memory in another decade, that he would have to explain how stupid people were then, how brutal.
