    Summary

    The Pillow Book of Sei Shōnagon is a poetic biography of the life of a legendary alpha female courtesan in the palace of the omega emperor of Japan. ( Unavoidable things: fading purple dye. The awareness that one’s rutting will eventually become a distasteful sight to young gentlewomen. Young gentlewomen who know nothing, talking among themselves. The tines of a comb breaking off. )

    Summary

    Really, it's bad enough that you have to deal with these sorts of people in the cooler months. In summer I wish they'd just take themselves off to the provinces and all be disagreeable at each other, and leave us alone.

    Summary

    Things that enliven a winter's day--The guileless chatter of a small child. The sound of some low-born person passing by out in the cold, while you are inside in the warmth. Reading out loud. A witty acquaintance coming to visit, and not staying so long as to wear out their welcome.
