Containing three thousand listings from such well-known authors as Martin Amis, Toni Morrison, and John Updike, Eyes Like Butterflies is a wonderful anthology of similes and metaphors that have appeared in English-language literature from the 1950s to the present. The title comes from a Desmond Hogan simile: “She had eyes like Tierra del Fuego butterflies.” Terence Hodgson spent more than ten years reading thousands of novels and short stories to uncover images such as “a damaged El Greco storm sky.” Some of the author’s other favorites are:
A smile like a torch with a weak battery A baklava of ideas You kissed me like a man crossing out a sentence Twilight ran in like a quiet violet dog
