Great Paragraphs: Looking for Rachel Wallace by Robert B. Parker

“As we approached the group, they joined arms in front of us blocking the entrance. In the center of the line was a large man with a square jaw and thick brown hair. Looked liked he’d been a tight end, perhaps at Harvard. He work a dark suit and a pale gray silk tie. His cheeks were rosy and his eye clear. Probably still active in his alumni association. A splendid figure of a man, the rock upon which the picket line was anchored. Surely a foe of atheism, Communism and faggotry. Almost certainly a perfect asshole.”

Robert B. Parker, “Looking for Rachel Wallace,” 1980
