Tim Robbins in 'Mystic River'

On Cambridge, Massachusetts:

"By all means accept the invitation to hell,
should it come. It will not take you far—
from Cambridge to hell is only a step;
or at most a hop, skip, and jump.
But now you are evading— you are
dodging the issue… after all,
Cambridge is hell enough."

— Great Circle , a 1933 novel by Conrad Aiken
(father of Joan Aiken, who wrote The Shadow Guests )
