This week's theme is Male Person: a description of a man or boy.

Here's mine about a parson/pastor from Tristram Shandy by Laurence Sterne (p. 20):

--he chose rather to join in the laugh against himself; and as he never carried one single ounce of flesh upon his own bones, being altogether as spare a figure as his beast, --he would sometimes insist upon it that the horse was as good as the rider deserved;--that they were centaur-like,--both of a piece.

I've been wanting to read this book ... yet another to add to the TBR pile! :) I like the passage you chose!

Crystal (I totally paused!) said...

Ooo, this one has been on my TBR list for a long time, I've heard great things about it!

Mine is from The Rose Without a Thorn, which is a book about Katherine Howard.
