Just a couple new to me words this week:
daruka, n Tree (in Sanskrit); also used as a proper name, for males
page 10, The Blue Notebook by James A. Levine
“The dim-witted say that I should have a throne of gold with pearl inlay and legs of ivory, and they ask why I chose instead the simple wood of the daruka tree to sit upon.”
page 20, The Blue Notebook by James A. Levine
“In an instantaneous action, Father pulled his khukri knife from behind his back, where I did not even know he had it.”
Review of book cited here:
The Blue Notebook by James A. Levine
Note: I did verify these quotes with the final version, but I was unable to verify the page numbers; The page numbers cited are from my Advance Reading Copy, so they may not be consistent with the page numbers for these quotes in the final version of the book.
