Men are moving Tove around like a prop. Though apathetic she finds power in the drama and in the ability to write revengeful one-liners: “His eyes are dull as raisins.” So blunt, raw, funny, and melancholically detached.
Listen to Anne Linnet sing the poem “The Eternal Triangle”: It was huge hit in 1986 (when I was 16. I still know it by heart!)
LOVE this sentence: “Piet is out the door again, so fast it’s as if he left through the wall.” It’s such a strong observation, so precise, and she’s basically describing “ghosting.”
