let's read s'more graham

Is it possible to fall in love over a dish of onions? It seems improbable and yet I could swear it was just then that I fell in love. It wasn't, of course, simply the onions — it was that sudden sense of an individual woman, of a frankness that was so often later to make me happy and miserable. I put my hand under the cloth and laid it on her knee, and her hand came down and held mine in place. I said, "It's a good steak," and heard like poetry her reply, "It's the best I've ever eaten."
--The End of the Affair, Graham Greene
A writer worthy of his name (it rolls off the tongue so very nicely!). The Heart of the Matter is up next; I've always loved that title.
