When their buddy Marvin asks Hap and Leonard to seem right into a cold-case double homicide, they're more than pleased to play deepest investigators: they prefer difficulty, and so they particularly like getting paid to discover it.

9. 1877What is difficult about writing how an officer fell in love with a lady? There's nothing difficult about it and, what's more, nothing good. It is bad and useless! 10. 27-28 July 1877 I myself, of course, am on the side of the priest and not at all on Levin's. But I re-worked this episode four times and it still seemed to me that it was noticeable on whose side I was. And I had noticed that every thing, every story made an impression only when one could not make out with whom the author's sympathies lay.
Draft for Confession, in which Tolstoi outlines his religious quest. 26. 1? May 1881 Concerning Karenina. I assure you that for me that abomination does not exist and that I am only annoyed that there are people who want this for some reason. V. Stasov. The editors of the Jubilee Edition assume that "this" does not refer to Anna Karenina. 27. 12 March 1889 All the same I sometimes feel like writing and, just imagine, most often it is precisely a novel, a broad, free one like Anna Karenina, into which without any strain everything could go that I think I have understood from a new, unusual and humanly useful angle.
Vague mentions of "Markevich" seem to suggest the later Veslovskii; but Levin's jealousy was at first provoked by Kitty's going out to meet the returning Dolly, allegedly in her anxiety to hear about and, if possible, to see Vronskii (here they are still Ordyntsev and Udashev). Anna's sense of isolation, especially from female friends, was also a constant, symbolized by the fact that, when Dolly first came across her out riding, she was accompanied only by Vronskii and a groom. Various expedients are tried out for her to explore new interests: at first she kept an aquarium and started a girls' school in which she herself taught (in Part VII of the final novel she retrospectively explains why she had been unable to take to rural schoolwork); later her reading of "fashionable serious books" by de Tocqueville, Carlyle, Lewes and Taine is spelled out.
