“If there’s a magic pony in the story, chances are I’ll read it.”
Chris Adrian

“If I showed you what was in my heart," she said, "it would burn you to a cinder.

"I've tried to burn you similarly," it said, "but you never even noticed when I opened my chest.”
Chris Adrian, The Great Night

“It takes four angels to oversee an apocalypse: a recorder to make the book that would be scripture in the new world; a preserver to comfort and save those selected to be the first generation; an accuser to remind them why they suffer; and a destroyer to revoke the promise of survival and redemption, and to teach them the awful truth about furious sheltering grace.”
Chris Adrian, The Children's Hospital
