‘Soundly’ is a chapter from Daniel Handler’s novel, ‘Adverbs’.
“Listen to it. Love was all we had left, all of us, as we sat beaten down with the knowledge that there wasn’t a boat for the rescue.”
“It is not the diamonds or the birds, the people or the potatoes; it is not any of the nouns. The miracle is the adverbs, the way things are done. It is the way love gets done despite every catastrophe.”
― Daniel Handler, ‘Adverbs’
