Sound Quality: Henriette Lazaridis on Jessie Chaffee's Florence in Ecstasy

We've all had that moment as readers when we stumble across a sentence in a novel or essay that sings to us from the page. There are sentences we want to wrap our tongues around, that we speak aloud just to revel in their aural qualities. For each installment of this series, Henriette Lazaridis chooses a single sentence from a work of literature and shows us why it is music to our ears.

This month's installment comes from Jessie Chaffee's novel Florence in Ecstasy.
