Chinese boxes

Chinese Boxes. Robin L. Chandler, 2022.

“…..that’s how my grandfather used to tell stories. The long wind-up, all the background, all those Chinese boxes; and then suddenly, the swift and expert slide into the finale…..where the connections between all the details you’d learned along the way…..he’d lingered over at the beginning, suddenly became clear.”

From Daniel Mendelsohn‘s The Lost: A Search for Six of Six Million
