Goodbye, as Emily Dickinson might have said, has a certain slant of light. Maybe I was imagining it, but the angle  of the afternoon light coming through the vertical slats of the blind seemed to whisper goodbye. I wasn’t ready for it, whispered or shouted…most of the guys I worked with wouldn’t have known who Emily Dickinson was or when she lived or if she wrote or what she wrote. None of them could have quoted a line of poetry if their lives depended on it. But their lives never depended on it. Has anybody’s life depended on such a flimsy thing? Only I knew about that slant of light. Only the college boy who became a cop on a drunken bet.” 

–Moe Prager, from The Hollow Girl


In celebration of the release on May 18 of The Hollow Girl, the ninth and final Moe Prager novel, we are revisiting some of the words of wisdom and wit from ex-NYPD cop, wine merchant, and sometime private investigator, Moe Prager. Today’s quote is from The Hollow Girl, the final book in the series.
