One Final Bonus – Idra Novey Quote 

“A school she visited the month before had not even had a working water fountain. In the classroom she’d observed there, two windows had been patched with masking tape and cardboard. Halfway through the class, a scrawny, feral-looking cat had slipped beneath the cardboard and hissed at a boy seated near the window. The teacher remarked on none of it. He’d just gone on lecturing in a resigned monotone until the cat drew closer and the boy smacked it with a notebook.”
― Idra Novey, Those Who Knew
