Italics Are Hard

Ha ha, remember when I briefly considered alerting you every time I read a book that had Jell-O in it, that was dumb, so this is from PORTNOY'S COMPLAINT: "It was my mother who could accomplish anything, who herself had to admit that it might even be that she was actually too good... She could make jello, for instance, with sliced peaches HANGING in it, peaches just SUSPENDED there, in defiance of the law of gravity." Roth uses the more proper and elegant italics, of course, not my caps, but I have never learned to do italics here.
