House of Sand and Fog, p. 178

At this point, self really has to wonder, what is it with André Dubus III and Filipinos?

  • Once, outside El Granada, I drove up to a 7-Eleven right before they closed. Some boy had just pulled a Stop and Rob, but I didn’t know it yet, and I was getting out of my cruiser just as he came out the front door, this real skinny Filipino kid, no older than sixteen or seventeen, holding a bunch of bills and a silver revolver pointed straight up at the sky from pushing the door open with that hand. And neither of us moved, we just looked at each other.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
