Too long for Litnoise, sounds from “The Job”

I’ve been reading “The Job,” by Sinclair Lewis. It’s been a source of great sound-related quotes that I’ve been mining for my Litnoise project at Twitter. Here’s a quote from a particularly nice section, where the protagonist first manages to catch her breath upon arriving in New York City:

“Una gave herself up to impressions of the city: the voices of many children down on Amsterdam Avenue, the shriek of a flat-wheeled surface car, the sturdy pound of trucks, horns of automobiles; the separate sounds scarcely distinguishable in a whirr which seemed visible as a thick, gray-yellow dust cloud.”

Of course, I have lots more at Litnoise on Twitter. I’d love it if you’d follow me– give it a shot!
