“We live in a world of banal miracles.”

I’ve just finished Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter. Spanning half a century, as well as the Earth, this story is beautiful: the imagery, the emotionality, the aching sadnesses and warm joys throughout. A lesson in purpose, aspiration and appearance is brewed heavily between the covers, despite the lightness of the read. Walter spruced up my commute, but I’d recommend taking this for a vacation by the water.
