“the specialised, metaphysical emptiness of Sunday mornings”

Waking Up in Toytown(an Amazon Associate link – if you prefer you can use this one to The Book Depository) is John Burnside‘s  new book and has a chapter where he opens with a description of Early Sunday Morning 1930 by Edward Hopper.  The title of this post is a quote from that chapter and is so great because it perfectly sums up a particular feeling of Sunday mornings that doesn’t apply to other days of the week, somehow. I think I will be reading other work by John Burnside.
