Here at Grub HQ, we're always talking about the novels keeping us up at night, the poems that call to us over our morning coffees, and those un-put-down-able memoirs you'll find us reading while walking through four lanes of traffic [Ed.'s note: all walk-reading is performed by Grub's trained extreme readers; do not try this at home]. Every month, we'll share our staff's latest literary obsessions to add to your own never-ending reading list.

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.
