Quotes by Herbert Lieberman

"facing the black square of the crawl, I had a sudden sensation that I was in a dream and that I’d dreamed the dream many times before. I saw myself entering the square—entering that cold, wet, dark place with the awful smell of sewage and human waste, the dry, hard ground crumbling, sinking beneath my feet, the straw pallet mouldering in the darkness."

"In the early days of December, Alice bought yarn and needles and began a wool sweater for him which she hoped to complete by Christmas."
