Descriptions of People
"..a tiny Korean woman: Kimy. She's wearing a blue silk dress and bright lipstick, and her eyebrows have been drawn on a little lopsided. Her hair is salt-and-pepper gray; it's braided and coiled into two buns at her ears."
"Henry's dad is thin, tall, angular, and tired. He doesn't look much like Henry. He has short gray hair, dark eyes, a long nose, and a thin mouth whose corners turn down a little."
(The Time Traveler's Wife, Audrey Niffengger)
