"The sky sagged cold and wan, coughing splatters of phlegmatic sunlight onto the grey and empty farms." - Deathless by Catherynne M. Valente

What a dreary way to start the book o_0 The personification of the sky as a dying person is quite vivid. Granted this is taking place in Russia during the heyday of communism there so... I suppose she has a right to be writing a dreary sentence right then. I'm really excited for the Russian folklore aspects of this book along with the splendidly twisted writing that I've come to expect from Valente.
