Roger Giroux
“On rich soils only abundant harvests of produce for ordinary consumption grow.
On poor soils the most misshapen trees, and flowers of the rarest, the subtlest colours and scents are to be found.”
Roger Giroux

Hannah Arendt
“The common prejudice that love is as common as "romance" may be due to the fact that we all learned about it first through poetry. But the poets fool us; they are the only ones to whom love is not only a crucial, but an indispensable experience, which entitles them to mistake it for a universal one.”
Hannah Arendt, The Human Condition

Charles Sanders Peirce
“All human affairs rest upon probabilities, and the same thing is true everywhere. If man were immortal he could be perfectly sure of seeing the day when everything in which he had trusted would betray his trust, and, in short, of coming eventually to hopeless misery. He would break down, at last, as every great fortune, as every dynasty, as every civilization does. In place of this we have death.”
Charles Sanders Peirce

Richard Hell
“It's great to be anywhere as a writer. It saves you from implication in the ugliness of the place and justifies your being there. You can spend all day jerking off as long as you describe it well.”
Richard Hell, Go Now

W.B. Hi Barry. Saw in the update feed you had a new title coming out. Keep me in mind for a review copy if it's not a limited edition run/limited review copies. Lately, I tend to review on my blog more, so if you're not averse to blog reviewing feel free to have BS send a copy when it comes to fruition. I enjoyed Opera. Contact info is on my blog, Joe Brainard's Pyjamas.
