let me spoil that ending for you

The best way to end a literary masterpiece has to be time paradox. Richard Powers, who has to be, if not the best, the most clever novelist in the whole word, does that in The Time of Our Singing. "The bird and the fish can make a bish. The fish and the bird can make a fird", sings little Robert. And just after that, Delia (she's black) says to her husband to be (he's Jewish) who has just noticed that she's blushing "Yes " (agreeing, and worse). 'Yes. We have this, too".

My my my my my oh my how I wept.
