"There was that strange light which follows a day of persistent rain, when the sun comes out and the sky clears too late to be of any use. The earth makes a sound as of sighs and the last drops fall from the emptied cloudless sky. A small boy, stretching out his hands and looking up at the blue sky, asked his mother how such a thing was possible. Fuck off, she said."
Na edição brasileira (de título Novelas, uma brochurinha simpática com a carona do Beckett na capa) a fala da mãe ficou traduzida como "me deixe em paz".
