The Street (1946) - Ann Petry

This quote was added by betty_d
Her voice had a thin thread of sadness running through it that made the song important, that made it tell a story that wasn't in the words - a story of despair, of loneliness, of frustration. It was a story that all of them knew by heart, and had always known because they had learned it soon after they were born and would go on adding to it until the day they died.
