Natalia Ginzburg, The Dry Heart

"How easy life is, I thought, for women who are not afraid of a man. I stared for a long time at my face in the mirror. It had never been very pretty, and now it seemed to me that every trace of youth and freshness was gone."

- Natalia Ginzburg, The Dry Heart (1947)
