I read War and Peace for the sixth time–one time for each decade of my life–and I realize it is melodrama, yet such spectacular melodrama. I recall Tolstoy repudiated the novel. He should not have. As pulp fiction goes, it is the best of all time. Now, I retire to my bed to read some more of it.

And think of her, of course, some more melodrama.
