Teaser Tuesday ~ Beautiful Ruins

I am enjoying the sense of place and a touch of philosophy in Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter. Here is a tease for Tuesday:

“A writer needs four things to achieve greatness, Pasquale: desire, disappointment, and the sea.”
“That’s only three.”
Alvis finished his wine. “You have to do disappointment twice.”
