What do you focus on first? The 'lobotomy' perhaps one of the most popularly conceived intersections between the unknown and the brutal a 'how could we' combined with a 'the best medicine has to offer' during a certain period of time The 'author' the oh I know what this will be about now I have her numbered down for my interval of reading depending on my mood and flavor of curiosity Or perhaps the 'prestigious literary prize' in conjunction with both for what does that say about the prize the judges fiction entire when writing literally saved a person's existence from systematic excision?Those who say space is the last frontier haven't considered the contours of their skull in a biosociocultural context for nearly long enoughWhat are your verbs?
