“Never walk away from failure. On the contrary, study it carefully for its hidden assets.”
Michael Korda

“It must be nice, Queenie thought, to be one thing or another, to know where you belonged.”
Michael Korda, Queenie

“Escapism sold books, to be sure, but not nearly as many as were sold by exposing America’s flaws and making the average American reader (and book club member) look closely at his or her most cherished social assumptions. Americans might not be eager to accept integration, feminism, homosexuality, juvenile delinquency, and the drug culture– or to shoulder the blame for the existence of these problems– but they were certainly willing to read about them.”
Michael Korda, Making the List: A Cultural History of the American Bestseller, 1900-1999
