This week was really difficult as the book I'm reading does not have any happy laughing moments really, everyone is rather depressed. But somehow I stumbled across one. My excerpt comes from 20 Fragments of a Ravenous Youth by Xiaolu Guo
"At the counter I ordered a red-bean ice-cream, then picked a table in the corner. Next to me was a giggling collective of teenagers, deep in conversation about TV star Little Swallow over their Big Macs."
