PRETTY PROSE

"Even the houses of my own dear readers must - though it be for just one day, one hour - be ruined and become houses where the stones are mortared with moonlight, windowed with starlight and furnished with the dusty wind."

From Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke.

I love that passage.
