I have been taught to think that life proceeds inevitably from its formative starting point and that its course is difficult to change. If it's the same with love, then there were bad omens from the beginning: the night before our wedding I dreamed that I was savagely attacked and pulled apart by wild dogs. . . . You are an unlucky thirteen years older than me. But here is the most telling thing: you wish to possess me. And my mistake: I loved you and let you think you could. p. 18—From Shadow Tag by Louise Erdrich (Harper Perennial edition, 2011)
