“Your (School) mission statement, says Galer Street, is based on global connectitude. You, people, don’t just think outside the box, you think outside the dictionary!”
Seattle and its culture are very prominent in this funny novel by Maria Semple, Where’d You Go, Bernadette.
If you are familiar with Seattle, you will find many references such as the Craftsman houses, neighborhoods, the “Seattle Freeze” (how cold native Seattle residents are to outsiders), Microsoft, and Chihuly chandeliers:
“Hovering over me was the Chihuly chandelier. Chihuly’s are the pigeons of Seattle. They’re everywhere and even if they don’t get in your way, you can’t help but build up a kind of antipathy toward them.”
I would recommend checking this book out!
