McCann is a true master: “If your life doesn’t flash in front of your eyes, old boy, does that mean you’ve had no life at all?” / “One goes up in a plane knowing, sometimes, that not all of you is going to come down.” / “The old days, they arrive back in the oddest ways, suddenly taut, breaking the surface, a salmon leap.” / “What was life anyway? An accumulation of small shelves of incident. Stacked at odd angles to each other.” / “The world does not turn without moments of grace. Who cares how small.”
