“Life really does go on. That's what I've learned. It goes.”
Lauren Grodstein, A Friend of the Family

“Your world is the world of coincidence, of meaninglessness. You choose the world that would have us as specks of dust, as mice in a cage. Is that the kind of world you want to live in,”
Lauren Grodstein, The Explanation for Everything: A Novel

“returned to his drunken mice, dreaming their placid, inebriated dreams. He reached in and scratched one on the nose; like a bum, or one of his daughters, it seemed to snort before it rolled over. Poor mice. They were the only animals whose alcoholism he was able to forgive—he knew the genetics behind it, after all—and he often found himself envying them their single-minded devotion to drinking, and their peace.”
Lauren Grodstein, The Explanation for Everything: A Novel
