Excerpt from Suttree by Cormac McCarthy.

He went solitary and

starlit through the sleepfast countryside, trotting soundlessly on his softworn shoes, past dead houses and dark land with the odor of ripe and humid fruits breathing in the fields and nightbirds crying in the keep of enormous trees. The road climbed up out of the woods and went on through farmland and he slowed to a walk, his hands slung in his hippockets and his elbows flapping, taking a dirt road down to the right, padding along soft as a dog, sniffing the rank grass and the odor of dust the dew had laid.

    I’d say seems writers always have a way to make people immersive, by those words I can immediately construct the whole picture, clearly see the forest and the man👀 and thank you for allowing me to breathe such fresh air. Lol Although firecrackers cannot be set off during the Spring Festival here, and the air is good🙈 I haven't walked overnight like this for a long time. Finally, I hope this is not taken from a horror story....
