What I’m Reading: The Very Persistent Gappers of Frip

From The Very Persistent Gappers of Frip by George Saunders:

“If you want my advice?” said Sid Ronsen. “Work harder. Actually, no, don’t work hard, work smarter. Be more efficient than you’ve ever been before. In fact, be more efficient that is physically possible. I know that’s what I’d do.”

“That’s also what I would do,” said Bea Romo.

“Me too,” said Carol Ronsen

I certainly wouldn’t start fishing about it,” said Sid Ronsen.

But Capable knew she had tried her best and her best hadn’t worked and remembered her mother once saying: Just because lot of people are saying the same thing loudly over and over, doesn’t mean it’s true.

So she kissed her father on the cheek and walked her goats out of Frip, and a few hours later returned with a fishing pole and some hooks and a big heavy book called How to Fish for Fish.
