Amy Hempel quote

"Aren't we all, I thought, somebody's harvest?"

I was reading Chuck Palahniuk's Stranger Than Fiction when he goes on about Amy Hempel and her work, including The Harvest which this quote is taken from. I agree with Chuck about, well, almost everything, but I think almost everyone might agree with him when he says that Ms. Hempel must painstakingly go over every sentence so that it takes moments for the reader to think about each separate expression. The quote above is one of those expressions for me.
